Yes but to do that, I need to mount the image with the loopback. And
for this you need to be root ... debian-cd works without being root
(except on sparc i think) and i don't want to loose this feature because
of this new step that can be easily done at your level.

Your change is in dbootstrap or in the build process ? I think the
latter would be better... otherwise you'll never be able to run without
the cdrom stuff while using a 2.88mb image (it may not be usual but that
may happen, for example when someone is using user mode linux or
something like that).
