Mounting ISO files as a normal user...


Currently I can only mount ISO files as root. It would be very helpful if I could do this as a normal user. What do I have to do?

Thanks muchly.

Eh? The dir /mnt/iso is owned by root, as are /mnt/cdrom, cdrom2, win_c, etc. The .ISO file itself is probably owned by root since it's on a DVD.

It wouldn't have anything to do with the /dev/loopx 'files', would it?

Would I have to create a new group 'isomount', chown the /dev/loopx files to isomount, and add the normal users to isomount?
