Canīt mount a qemu image
I can't mount a win.img image file which I created to run win under my sarge box. Qemu and the virtual machine runs perfectly fine, but I can't do

mount -o loop /etcetc/win.img /some-place

In order to copy files.

Mount tells me:

frank:/home/bruno/qemu# mount -o loop /backup/img/win.img /backup/mount/
ioctl: LOOP_CLR_FD: Device or resource busy
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

The filesystem in the virtual machine is fat32, if it matters.

someone help?

This could be because this image isn't only one partition, it's a whole harddisk, so the first blocks of the image are the partitiontable and some other stuff. So mount cant recognize the image format.
