Date: 2010nov2 OS: Linux Q. How do I mount a .iso image without burning a CD-ROM ? A. If your file is /tmp/myfile.iso First, become root. You first need to make a "mount point" which is just an empty directory. The /mnt folder is a good place for this:mkdir /mnt/myfileNow you can mount it:mount -o loop -t iso9660 /tmp/myfile.iso /mnt/myfileThis is called a "loopback" mount and very cool in my opinion. Use it like this:cd /mnt/myfile lsWhen you are done unmount as follows:umount /mnt/myfile
