It's actually a feature - 2.4.x kernels allow you to mount the same filesystem 
in several different locations.
Comment 2 Ofer Alfassi 2001-11-25 06:38:07 EST
Thanks for your repay.
In continuation to my question I show that I can mount the same filesystems 
mutiple time to the same mount point directory. Is it also part of the feature 
or not?

mount /dev/sda /mnt
mount /dev/sda /mnt
