argh. this was supposed to be fixed eons and eons ago..... I'll investigate

actually in this case it is fine. the root disk doesn't have the standard
modules layout because of the way it is built. If you have an empty
modules.dep in the 2.2.17 subdirectory it should be fine though.

zcat root.bin > root.bin.uncompressed
mount -o loop root.bin.uncompressed /mnt
