    *resolved*Mounting ISO in Linux - what do you use?

    In windows, I am totally accustomed to using Daemon tools and mounting DVD iso's or CD ISO's all the time to perform my tasks.

    What program do you you all like for ISO mounting in Linux? Or am I approaching this with Windows thinking when all I really need to do is just perform a 'mount' in my mount directory?

    Re: Mounting ISO in Linux - what do you use?

    iso is a file in iso9660 filing standard.

    It can be mounted by the "mount" command in any Linux. Just specify the type and use a loop back device

    Here is an example. I have an iso file lfslivecd-x86-6.3-r2145(2).iso in /abit directory. I make a temporary directory /mnt/crdom, mount it and list the content of /mnt/cdrom. The mount command is shown in blue.
    Code:
    linux:/home/saikee/Desktop # ls /abit
    1Gb USB           grub                            mp3-2ndQuality  Recycled        TomTom_backup
    bachup_2007-7     lfslivecd-x86-6.3-r2145(2).iso  msvcp71.dll     RWDVD01.iso     .Trash-saikee
    Betty-home        lost+found                      msvcr71.dll     saikee          .volume.inf
    Digital_Pictures  makeiso                         print.pdf       Scanned photos  wincd
    DVD_iso           mp3                             print.rtf       SXS
    
    linux:/home/saikee/Desktop # mkdir /mnt/cdrom
    linux:/home/saikee/Desktop # mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /abit/lfslivecd-x86-6.3-r2145\(2\).iso /mnt/cdrom/
    linux:/home/saikee/Desktop # ls /mnt/cdrom
    boot  drivers  lfs-sources  README.html  root.ext2
    linux:/home/saikee/Desktop #
    Afterward the files are visible in the desktop just like any others.
