[dm-devel] How to mount initrd file?



		Hello,
			
			I am trying to mount /boot/initrd-2.6X file using a
loop back device. I am facing the following problem.

		Steps which I have executed:

1.	cp /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img /tmp
2.	mkdir /tmp/init
3.	cd /tmp
4.	mv /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img
/boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img.gz
5.	gunzip /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img.gz
6.	mount /boot/initrd-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.img /tmp/init -o loop

		For this mount I am getting error saying
			ioctl: LOOP_CLR_FD: Device or resource busy
			mount: you must specify the filesystem type

		I am using Fedora Core 4.

		What may be the problem?

		Thanks and regards, 
		Mallikarjuna C
