Description of problem:
Number of loop devices cannot be changed via modprobe.conf since loop is not a kernel module anymore:
# grep DEV_LOOP /boot/config-188.8.131.52-68.fc13.x86_64
Shouldn't be needed since 2.6.24 (?) or so.

But /dev/loop* entries aren't created on demand, are they?
AFAICT you still need to run MAKEDEV to get additional loop device entries.
Removing myself for these bug components as I'm either no longer involved in that aspect of the project, or no longer care to watch this particular bug. Sorry if you are caught in a maelstrom of bug changes as a result!
Hello Alan, thanks for reporting, and apologies for the lack of response. This is an interesting question, however as you can tell, this guide is no longer actively maintained, so I am closing this issue.
