You'll need to be root to do most of this. Firstly, create a directory to mount it into:
Then mount it:
mount -o loop FC5.iso /media/FC5
You now have a normal directory structure representing the ISO under /media/FC5. It behaves as any other directory. Read/write to/from it at will, the ISO is kept up-to-date as changes are made. In this respect, you can think of the ISO being just like another hard disk, but instead of being a physical disk it's stored in a single file instead.
When you're done, unmount it:
And then to burn it (assuming this is a CD, not a DVD)
The iso9660 filesystem is read-only. You will need to copy the files to another directory tree, make your changes and then burn a new image. You might want to read through the cdrom burning howto at http://www.tldp.org web site.
Has anyone found a an ISO editor that works under linux ?
As far as mkisofs is concerned, is it possible to include the boot code as well ? I am trying to edit one of the bootable linux CDs. If I mount the iso image on a directory and copy the contents to another directory then, use mkisofs, would it produce a bootable CD as the original ?
