IIRC the igel box uses minix filesystems mounted on top of the NFTL so you 
don't access the flash layer directly. (It also uses the M-Systems proprietry 
driver, which isn't suprising as Igel wrote it)

mount file.img /mnt -t minix -o loop  should do the trick.
I think the igel box has 4 minix partitions on the DoC.
