Well. That was helpful... but didn't solve the problem.
I have one box in which modprobe fatals, but another one
in which it's okay. Here's what happens:

[root@blade15 xen-rh64-gold]# modprobe loop
[root@blade15 xen-rh64-gold]# ls
hda  mnt
[root@blade15 xen-rh64-gold]# mount -o loop -t ext3 hda mnt
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
       missing codepage or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

And yet, I would swear that this worked at one time.

The vm installed into "had" is configured with the default
partitioning mechanism, which involves LVM.
