Mounting Image with eeepc.


Hey

Long time since i last had linux.

My brother is here with his Eeepc 900 and where trying to play Heroes of might and magic 3.

I got the iso for the game however i cannot manage to get a program to mount it with. Aceton dident work i think because its KDE based.

Please help me, what program can i get or is there a simple built in command for mounting Iso's?

Thanks

You don't need any software to mount an ISO. Just run the command:

Code:
mount -o loop ./filename.iso /mnt/mountpoint

sudo mount -o loop ./HMM3-Linux.iso.bz2 /mnt/hmm3
mount: you must specify the filesystem type


i also tried: -sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 ./HMM3-Linux.iso.bz2 /mnt/hmm3
