Kevin,

I've had a collection of mounts on my HD that I hadn't seen show up in
f7, but were showing in rawhide in the disk mounter applet.

The mounts included:

'/' (I'm using '/1' for this install),

'/var' (which should be '/var/www' anyway, and was already mounted
as /var/www in my filesystem),

'/mnt/vmware' (which was mounted and already a part of my filesystem),
and

'/boot' (this install of rawhide has '/boot' as part of '/1')

and aren't the sort of thing I would have thought should have been
showing up as available.

The addition of this file above has removed them from appearing in the
disk mounter applet.  Should it be included in f8 by default?  From
where I sit, it makes things as I would expect them to be.
