Ok, I am bittorrenting alpha centauri as we speek. It's a .iso image and I have a problem: I don't think my CD drive is being recognized well under linux so I can't just burn the iso and then install it, what can I do? I'm running debian with the 2.6.8 kernel. Also, if other people around here have the game for windows, can I play online with them? Thanks all.
it's mounting the CD image... thereby making the contents accessible to the system...
let's do this step by step, then you can ask more specific questions...
-- ~ is shorthand for your home directory (/home/yourusername)
1) make a directory ~/mounted-iso/ (use the mkdir command)
2) run the command mount -t iso9660 -o loop ~/desktop/game.iso ~/mounted-iso/
3) you can now view the contents -- ls ~/mounted-iso/
--you might only be able to run mount as root, so run 'su' prior to mounting/unmounting.
