I couldn't get a loopback mount to work since the .img file was not

Yet the checksum was OK, and the binary.img worked fine after dd to a
flash drive (which yielded a FAT filesystem). The loopback mount did
not work with either auto or msdos options. The binary.img was on a FAT
filesystem, but as far as I know that should not matter; ext2 can be
mounted loopback on FAT. So I suppose there is something funny about
the .img file.
