I'm using Wubi (ubuntu 9.10), and I couldn't find where '/host' mountpoint is declared for mounting. There's no entry in fstab, but it's listed in /proc/mount and mounted at boot time. Any ideas?

pedroel@ubuntu:~$ cat /proc/mounts

It's specified as the "root device" - I'm guessing in GRUB's configuration, /boot/grub/menu.lst, or in the Windows bootloader (C:\boot.ini or bootcfg) - then mounted in the initramfs.
