Question method to install ISO file


I have SuSE Service pack ISO files stored in hard disk.
What is the method to install ISO files (Without burning it to CD)?
IS there any set of commands to install ISO files??

You can mount the iso, using the loop device:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/cdrom
Of course you can use another mount point instead of /mnt/cdrom.
Then go to that directory and install the s/w you want.
