Hi,

it seems the Server Updates 6.3 DVD is too big now that it cannot be 
loop mounted anymore.

I couldn't find a md5sum on the Dell website to doublecheck my download 
though.

34baff0c565ac9a057e5a13188e2f2c1  om630_suu_a00.iso

Anybody seeing this?
Is there a solution / different mount option?

# mount -o loop om630_suu_a00.iso /tmp/1

Running the updater either from X or from console spits kernel messages:
