Hmm.  I'm not able to reproduce this here.

    [andersen@slag boot-floppies]$ cp root1440.bin /tmp/root1440.bin.gz
    [andersen@slag boot-floppies]$ cd /tmp/
    [andersen@slag /tmp]$ gunzip root1440.bin.gz
    [andersen@slag /tmp]$ sudo mount ./root1440.bin /floppy -t ext2 -o loop
    [andersen@slag /tmp]$ sudo chroot /floppy bin/ash
    [\u@\h \W]\$ mount
    /proc/mounts: No such file or directory
    [\u@\h \W]\$ ps
      PID  Uid      Gid State Command
    [\u@\h \W]\$ mount proc /proc -t proc
    [\u@\h \W]\$ ps
      PID  Uid      Gid State Command
	1 root     root     S init [4]
	2 root     root     S kflushd
    [\u@\h \W]\$ mount
    /dev/root on / type ext2 (rw)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)
    devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
    /dev/loop0 on /floppy type ext2 (rw)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw)

Could you share a bit more detail?  Is this the boot-floppies
from CVS, or the slink boot floppies?
