I ran slackware over umsdos just to try out linux, but I've since chucked
all the documentation away. I think what you observe is just a feature of
the way umsdos works. C:\LINUX gets promoted to / and C:\ is made visible
to linux as /DOS, IIRC. Quite where one would expect to see /dev/hda1
mounted is a complete mystery to me! (Presumably, you can't see /DOS/linux
either, even though you know C:\LINUX exists. I don't remember.)
