kickstart problem in stage2

Hi all,

I am having problem while using anaconda installer.for my custom build

Following are the images used :
a) Fedora-12-ppc-DVD.iso
b) kernel-

I am able to build the install.img successfully and using nfs mount for getting the images. 
I am able to mount successfully. My output in the shell prompt for the mount command
bash-4.0# mount                                                                                          
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw,relatime)                                                                    
/proc on /proc type proc (rw,relatime)                                                                   
/dev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,relatime)                                                                    
/dev/pts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,relatime,mode=600,ptmxmode=000)                                     
/sys on /sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)                                                                    
none on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,relatime)                                                            on /mnt/stage2 type nfs4 (ro,noatime,vers=4,rsize=8192,wsize)

In the kickstart text screen after I specify the server name and path it fails giving the following error:

12:20:26 INFO    : starting STEP_STAGE2
12:21:33 ERROR   : failed to mount loopback device /dev/loop0 on /mnt/runtime as /mnt/stage2//install.img

I am using the following patch for sqfs, after extracting
a) unsquashfs -d "$D/sqfs" "$D/iso.dir/images/install.img"
b) patch -d "$D/sqfs" -p1 < "$D/sqfs.patch"
c) mksquashfs "$D/sqfs" install.img -all-root

From the discussions in the internet, I understand some patch is required.  I am not sure which patch will help me fix this.
Please let me know how to cross this stage.
