    SubjectMounting 'foreign' file-systems

    On Linux 2.4.18, I can no longer mount CDROMs that were created
    using ext2 as the file-system (yes I know this is not specified).
    I used to use these CDROMs as part of a "rescue" package.

    Now, these can still be mounted through the loop device as is
    shown below....

    Script started on Mon May 20 11:12:16 2002
    # mount /dev/sr0 /mnt
    mount: block device /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sr0,
    or too many mounted file systems
    # mount -o loop /dev/sr0 /mnt
    # ls /mnt
    bin dev etc lib lost+found mnt root sbin tmp usr
    # umount /mnt
    # exit
    Script done on Mon May 20 11:13:01 2002

    So the question is, how could I put the mount options on the command
    line during LILO boot? I tried root=/dev/sr0 {failed}
    root="/dev/sr0 -o loop" {failed}
    root=/dev/sr0,-o,loop {failed}

    ..or.. is there a problem that is going to be fixed to revert to
    the older behavior ..or.. Am I going to have to redo my rescue
    stuff to use iso-9660?
