As far as I see, your partition is on LVM volume /dev/VG_Dom6_Linux/LogVol00
Under your Dom0 create temporary folder :
# mkdir /mnt/temp
then mount your partition there (assuming it's ext3, if not, add -t option and 
appriopriate fs):
#mount /dev/VG_Dom6_Linux/LogVol00 /mnt/temp -o defaults

All contents will be available under /mnt/temp, so edit /mnt/temp/etc/fstab. 
That's the simplest way. Don't play with losetup, as you already have 
partition. Besides losetup is for file-based partitions.
