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?
