Well, that lets me out on fedora 8, which is still on 2.6.24, or SuSE 10.3, 
which is on 2.6.22. I could test it on my Fedora Rawhide (currently 9.01) xen 
domu tho'.

I haven't downloaded the code yet - waiting for it to be integrated into a new 
3.x release. Looking at your fstab, the question comes up does nullfs  have 
the same problem 3.0/Fist had that you can't overlay '/' because of 'init'?
