Problem mounting CD image (no loop device)...

Hi. My problem is when I try to mount an iso image, I get a complaint about not loop device:
[root@gentoo:/aaron/tmp] # mount -t iso9660 -o loop /shared/temp/tcf-potca-01.iso /mnt/image
mount: could not find any device /dev/loop#
When I list the contents of /dev, there isn't a device called loop there either. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

either try makedev loop or alternatively you will need to recompile your kernel include support for loopback, but it should be in there already
