I don't think that you can use your own root fs. It's probably better to use another one. Because UML FS is seen as a normal file by your current FS. A solution if you really want to use the same FS for both, is to create an image of your current FS. Moreover modifications between FS can be merge by a uml tool (sorry I don't remember its name but you 'll find it on uml site).
