qtopia image at /media/card directory

I've been running the qtopia image for a few days and I'd like to dual
boot it with the ASU or FSO image just to keep an eye on what is
happening with them.

Thus I have the qtopia in the main flash, and I'd like to put the ASU or
FSO image into the SD card.

However, I ran into a problem.  the SD card is mounted at /meda/card
(it's the original card that came with the phone), and there is a
qtopia_db.sqlite file on it.

And sure enough the qpe process has open file handles on it and so is
clearly using it.

Does anyone know where the config option is for moving this file off
/media/card?  I can't find it anywhere after grepping the whole device
for /media/card, card, /media, etc.

The other option is just to take /media/card out of fstab so it ends up
on the main flash - but then I don't know whether qpe (and friends) are
finding the card through other means (e.g. the block device or MTD, etc.).

Anyone know?
