But you said you have a bunch of the IP110s, so they will match.  You only 
get that problem if cards move, which can't happen on embedded cards.

I would recommend starting a new thread with this.  However, commands to 
mount a image...

unzip and mount the image file;
 gunzip -S ".img" generic-pc-1.22.img
 vnconfig vn1 generic-pc-1.22 && mount /dev/vn1 /mnt/vn1
 gunzip -c /mnt/vn1/mfsroot.gz > mfsroot
 vnconfig vn2 mfsroot && mount /dev/vn2 /mnt/vn2
