I have VL7 installed on a separate partition and the 'mount' command will
mount it or 'umount' it, yet in mc or any FM it shows that it is always mounted
and I can manipulate files within.

If I have this partition not mounted with the 'mount' command lilo will show
Fatal: Illegal root specifiction and 'mount' shows it is not mounted.

How can I make this partition really unmounted so it will not show in any
file manager? And how did this possibly happen?

is it possible that you have files written there, so they are visible when the partition is not mounted?

Well, after further checking, the partition where VL7 resides it is actually not mounted
What I see in /mnt/VL7 when not mounted is an image of my "/"  woking
VL6 partition.  When I give command 'mount /mnt/VL7' the real /mnt/VL7 is
mounted and that 'ghost' mount is gone.

How could this be corrected without possibly damaging my VL6?
