Yes, this is what happens.  I can add the /www to /var, but it always
makes me wonder why it doesn't just appear as /var/www (as it had been
mounted last time).

I usually have two installs of fedora on my laptop.  One is the current
stable (which I often use until test2) and the other is rawhide (which I
usually adopt around test2).  They toggle from partition to partition
since I'll upgrade rawhide to f8 and then f7 will become rawhide (hope
that makes sense).

Both installs use the same /var/www, /mnt/vmware, /home and swap
partitions and I have separate / and /boot partitions for one install,
and a / partition which includes /boot for the other.  Since fedora uses
labels, it labels the second / as '/1'.

What's happening is I'm seeing some of my already mounted partitions
(/var/www and /mnt/vmware) and I'm also seeing the / and /boot
partitions (not mounted) from the other install.  I'm not sure I want to
be seeing partitions from the other install and I know I don't need to
be seeing partitions that are mounted as part of the filesystem I'm
using.  Strangely, I'm not seeing /home in the list.
