Hi Graham, thanks for your reply.

Just for reference a file system is mounted to a directory.  Before
anyone can answer your question about what these could be, some more
information would be very helpful, such as the contents of /net and
/host, the output of `mount` and the contents of /etc/fstab.

Hopefully then we can help further.  Thanks!
