Hint: for space reasons, the cloop image is an ISO9660 formatted Linux
system, so you probably have to have an ISO9660 enabled (not module)
kernel, and you probably have to specify the kernel separately via
"-kernel", as the cloop image (at least to my knowledge) does not contain
a valid boot loader.
