I'm trying to edit a couple of files that are in the new initrd file that
comes with HP2. Here is what I do to before I get the error:

1. I get my initrd file to a standalone linux box so I can edit it
2. mv initrd initrd.gz
3. gunzip initrd.gz

Here is where I get the error:

mount -o loop initrd mnt/initrd

mount: you must specify the filesystem type.

I never get this error when I do this with the older initrd that is with
zen 7 sp1. Could this be because my linux box is at an older version of
suse (9)? I need to be able to get into the new initrd file to edit the
prompt.s file and add another file to it, then I can rezip this up and
use it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
