Unfortunately, in trying to mount the drive I've run into some problems. The only one I seem to be able to relate to is the one in my title.
After plugging in the USB device, this message appears in dmesg:

Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods

you can also boot netbooter off a hard drive partition and net-install
that way as netbootcd runs in ram

add this entry to your menu.lst/grub.cfg

title NetbootCD-3.1.2
root (hdx,x)
kernel /boot/kexec.bzI quiet norestore base nolocal
initrd /boot/nbinit3.gz
menuentry "NetbootCD-3.1.2" {
    linux /boot/kexec.bzI quiet norestore base nolocal
    initrd /boot/nbinit3.gz
