problem moving files when installing LFS in one single partition mode

I am trying to figure out to to finish my LFS system.

I am doing it in one single partition. I have created my LFS filesystem in
the file /tmp/lfs.disk as indicated in the hint :

So, now I have everything installed in the lfs.disk file. The hint says (for
possibility 1, getting rid of the old distribution):

You've chosen the 1. possibility?

Mount the main partition to "/mnt" in the chroot'ed environment suggesting
your main partition is /dev/hda1, otherwise fill in what is necessary:

	mount /dev/hda1 /mnt

My problem is that I have /dev/hda1 already mounted. Besides, it is going to
be always mounted as for accessing the /tmp/lfs.disk, the /dev/hda1 partition
has neccessarily to be mounted.

What am I missing here ? Any enlightmen greatly apreciated.
