Firmware Dump Mounting Issues : resolved

Hi.

After dumping the RSMedia Firmware,  I followed the instructions and tried to mount the files in ubuntu 8.04 (CD Live version). 

The mount script created the root and sub directories but each mount command generated a Loop_FD Invalid Argument error.

I have no idea why.

I left the files on the flash drive this time and it worked.

I was surprised at how many links there are in these volumes. Trying to copy files out of the mounted drives got stuck in endless loops all over the place. I can see it being a real mess to restore if I ever trash the RS OS. I'd better be careful !!
