A little massaging is needed and simple image loopback mounts 
seem 'touchy' in practice as outlined in the upstream's 
documentation.  I have long published heavier third-party 
scripts on doing this setup, dating back at least to the RHL 7 
and LTSP 3 series [Aurora, YDL, ...] days.  I did a re-write 
recently (a year ago now, I see checking datestamps, and oding 
a bit of updating) and use for CentOS (day to day production, 
and QA testing):
 	and its helper: install-from-iso.sh
