Login as root and open terminal, in linux prompt
# mkdir -p /mnt/disk
# mount -o loop *.iso /mnt/disk
The first command will create folder named disk in inside the mnt folder and the second command will mount the iso image to the newly created folder.
I have rhel5-x86.iso file with me, now i am going to mount this in my linux system.
1. I copied my iso file to my desktop (/home/user/Desktop)
2. Then I created one folder on my mnt folder (mkdir -p /mnt/disk)
3. Now my present working directory is /home/user/Desktop so I mount the iso file bu typing the following command. [root@linuxsrvr Desktop]# mount -o loop rhel5-5x86.iso /mnt/disk
Now my iso image is mounted to folder disk, I can read files from the iso image.
