No problem there.

Wait a minute. The BL2 kernel does not need isofs, right?

Does /cd exist on the BL3 root directory?

Not mount? You said that isofs wouldn't insert correctly, earlier.
So isofs will not insert in BL3 on one of your computers? But BL2,
since it doesn't need insertion, works fine?

Why? I don't think a recent busybox mount will give you any trouble.

Will it not mount them, or will isofs not insert?
