SubjectLoop stuck in -D state

I tried Linux 2.4.2
Now I'm in a load of trouble. I can't make a boot-disk to get back
to 2.4.1 because I use initrd for my hard disk modules and the loop
device is broken.

100 0 1055 1040 9 0 780 780 wait_on_buf D 1 0:00
mount -o loop -t ext2 /tmp/ram /tmp/Ramdisk

This is gonna be fun. I'll have to make a boot floppy on another machine
that doesn't have a broken loop device.
