Instead of calculating the offset and providing an offset option to mount, let lomount do the job for you by just providing the partition number you would like to loop mount.
There are 7 alternatives - vote for the best!
Suppose you made a backup of your hard disk with dd:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/mnt/disk/backup.img
This command enables you to mount a partition from inside this image, so you can access your files directly.
Substitute PARTITION=1 with the number of the partition you want to mount (returned from sfdisk -d yourfile.img).
If you can do better, submit your command here.
