    Oh and I meant to say:
    Code:
    sfdisk -l -uS image.dd
    To find the start offset.

    It pretty strait forward. From the below the first partition starts at 63 and the sector size is 512. To mount it use an offset of 63*512. The same goes for second partition. The offset will 499968*512.

    mount -o loop,offset=32256 imagefile.img /mnt

    Code:
    foo@bar:~$ fdisk -ul imagefile.img 
    You must set cylinders.
    You can do this from the extra functions menu.
    
    Disk imagefile.img: 0 MB, 0 bytes
    32 heads, 63 sectors/track, 0 cylinders, total 0 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x07443446
    
            Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    imagefile.img1   *          63      499967      249952+  83  Linux
    imagefile.img2          499968      997919      248976   83  Linux

    That worked. Thank you for your help. I apologize for not giving enough information quickly enough: I thought that my meaning would be clear with the information I gave, but I was apparently wrong.

    When I said "that worked", I was referring to this post, BTW.
