I don't know enough about your setup to know what you should
have, but this is almost certainly wrong: you're trying to make
real physcial partition hda1 visible to the domain as both sda1
and sda6.

Are you trying to have a a separate writeable root and read-only
/usr partion?  

You do realise that the writeable partition must not be the same
partition that you're using for domain0's root? You need to make
a copy.
