interesting....

assuming that you did everything that isotostick.sh requires...
http://www.startx.ro/sugar/USB.README

...then this post becomes interesting...

...look for a post from Narc.

my question is, why go through this problem? (hack?) why not burn it to a CD and install it to a flash drive directly? (don't forget to install the bootloader on the flash drive not on the primary partion on the hard drive in the computer)

I have been doing the -o loop -t iso blah blah forever w/o any mount problem. This just recently came up after downloading and installing some upgrades. Funny thing is it only happen on my macbook pro but not on my Dell m1210.

Solved

After going through ton's of irrelevant post the cause for this dreaded "Loop_SET_FD " require a change of directory of the source ( usually .iso ). Then the usual -o loop command should once again be dandy.
At least that has been my solution.
