[Fedora-xen] Cannot create files or dirs even as root on FC6 xen system


I've installed a FC6 xen guest system and there is a /misc folder which I want to create files and directories. I get a permission denied when I try to do so even when I am root.

# pwd
# mkdir test

mkdir: cannot create directory `test': Permission denied

When I do a directoy listing on /, misc is 0 bytes.

drwxr-xr-x  2 root root     0 Nov 21 13:24 misc

I have listed the disk space usage and the fstab below.
# df -k
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/xvda1            11904588   1830176   9459928  17% /

LABEL=/var              /var                    ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=SWAP-xvda2        swap                    swap    defaults        0 0

I'm not sure if this issue happens only on FC6 xen but I am able to create files and directories on a FC5 xen system.
