Mount more than 8 iso images

Hi, I am trying to share my 13 sarge cds over http. For that I have the 13 iso images of the cds and I want to mount all of the them on /var/www. I can do that with no problem with the first 8 cds. After that I get a message of :
mount: could not find any free loop device
So I create the new loop devices as it says here:

But when I reboot nothing happens. Is seems that the problem is because I can't edit the /etc/modules.con directly in Debian.

Any idea,

Firstly, for nearly all setups you only need the first3 CDs.

Try editing /etc/modules instead or even load the modules at boot time in GRUB/LILO.
