Yes, the DOS partition I access with E: under DOS is mounted on /dos/e.
I didn't setup a logical drive 'e:' for mtools under Linux (I'll try later
if that works).
'a:' is associated with /dev/fd0 in mtools.conf (as it is per default
after installing mtools).

You can work around that, if you mount the FAT drive with option 'quiet'.
However, this isn't the reason for the error message.
