Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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 ?
