OK, I see your confusion.

When you add disks to libguestfs, they appear as /dev/sda, /dev/sdb
and so on, in the same order that you added them.

In this case I added one disk, 'guestfish -a /dev/lvm0/win2003-01-a',
which will appear in libguestfs as /dev/sda.

This is *not* the same as /dev/sda in a VM.
