Help! Can't mount iso during sarge installation( busybox)

From sarge, debian uses busybox to boot the initial installtion system.
I want to use sarge iso to perform installation, however, I found that I can't use "mount -o loop XXXX.iso /cdrom" to mount an iso image, and before that I've used "mknod /dev/loop0 b 7 0" , but the mount cmd always said that no block device.
I don't know whether the boot kernel has any loop device support,
Can anybody who successfully tried that or facing the same problem give a note?
Many thanks!!!

I don't use it, but I think you do have to have loopback device support in the kernel. You should be able to view your .config file to see if yours do have support.
