I should have read what you actually wrote and not what I thought you
wrote :-)

You're right - the base disks don't have a file system on them.  They
are a simply a copy of a cpio or a tar file (I forgot which) that is
read directly from the raw device.  They are not intended to be used
by anything other than the installation procedure.

I hope my previous message describing fdmount would be of some use to
some users even though it was misdirected at your question.
