Mouning Virtual Drives


Got just one question four you guys. Is it possible to mount a virtual drive so you can run an iso as if it were an actual device, like a DVD or CD-Rom drive?

where did you invent a "virtual drive" from? You mean you want to mount an iso file? easy:
Code:
mount -o loop file.iso /mnt/point
