Ok, Im using Red Hat linux 8.0 and fluxbox-01.14 for a window manager.
I am very new to linux, and I was trying to mount my windows xp harddrive. Im running 2 harddrives, one is windows xp, one is inux...

Anyways I wanted to mount it so I could emulate it in linux, with winex or something like that.

So here is my problem. Somehow when I was trying to mount my winx;p harddrive, I accidently mounted my linux harddrive to /mnt/ so now to get into my mounted stuff, its... /mnt/mnt/
and in /mnt/ I have all the files and stuff from just /

When I try to unmount the drive it gives me an error saying that it is in use.....

How the heck do I get rid of this mistake?
