loop devices if I am correct.
Anyways, if it is about loop devices, you can

devices (I have 64 at present) to the kernel command
line in case you
are running a kernel >= 2.4 and you have loop device
into the kernel. If you are running a kernel <= 2.2,
you need to
recompile the kernel changing the loop.c file in the
Also you need to create the devices needed in the
/dev directory with
correct major and minor numbers and apropriate
permissions. I created
/dev/loop8 to /dev/loop63
