I resolved it.  I found a doc on the net somewhere.  It was reading a copy
of the Domain0 fstab.

Is there a xensource document that outlines disabling/setting fstab,
ifcfg-eth0, etc.?  For some reason I didn't catch that anywhere and had to
rely on an untrusted source.

Thanks for your input.

Sorry to say so, but you probbably get no reply on this because it's
hard to understand what's your problem.

You really mean, INSIDE your VM, the / filesystem has THE SAME
contents than the / filesystem of your Domain 0? Are you sure - how
did you check that?

I don't see how this can happen with such a config as you send it.
(apart from, your dom0 root file system is /dev/VirtualVolume/vir%d

As you disabling fstab in a guest: that's wrong, either your reading
the wrong howto, or misread it.
You have to disable som, but not all lines in inittab, for some guest
