You have to create it from the *host-server*, within the vserver's chroot
filesystem space--one of the capabilities that vservers drop is the ability
to create device-nodes.
host-server% cp -a /dev/sda42 /vservers/alpha/dev/hdv1

You will have to mount it with `usrquota,grpquota' in the host-server.
[Re-]Mount it then copy the line from `host:/etc/mtab' into
`vserver:/etc/mtab' and change the mount-point (`/vservers/alpha/') to `/'.
You want a line (in `vserver:/etc/mtab') that looks like:
/dev/hdv1 / ext3 rw,usrquota,grpquota 0 0
