Duplicate directory after install


I assigned some specific directory to different partition as mount point during installation. Such as:
dev/sda1/ as /root
dev/sda2/ as /home
dev/sda3/ as /usr

After the installation was completed. I found /home and /usr under /root directory. I think they duplicate to those in dev/sda2 and dev/sda3.

Also, I don't know how to access to the other partition. Simply type cd /dev/sda2/home doesen't work.

Can you post your /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab file?
