I am trying to modify the grml CD to allow me to include the Dell open 
management tools. This is so that I can boot from a grml CD and configure 
the RAID controller on a Dell server.

I am trying to follow the instructions on the wiki but I can't mount the 
squashfs.  The error message I get is below. I am trying this on a debian 
squeeze machine with a 2.6.30 kernel.

# mount -o loop -t squashfs ./new/live/grml.squashfs  ./loop/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so
oot at lambeau:~/grml#I have done
