no. once you mount a new filesystem, the old one is entirely hidden.
now, this may not always be true. i have heard about writable CDROM
patches, where your writes to the CDROM are kept on a RW filesystem, so
the RW filesyste is on overlay of the CDROM.
and some other filesystem semantics may be able to change that, but at
this point in time: no. the old is gone until the mount is umounted.
