ok try this if not:

mkdir /iso-temp
umount /mnt/diabloii

mount -t iso9660 -o loop /path/to/your/imagefile /iso-temp

cd /iso-temp

If it still isnt working, try upgrading ur kernel, you could also try lsmod to see if loop is installed.

Try trawling google for answers to your error:
http://www.google.com/search?q=mount...=opera&num=100

If none of this is working, you may just have a bad image file.

Im in need of sleep too, ive been up for a while now.

v00d00: I dont know it says something about "bad" kernel...and that it will try to compile it but it needs the kernel-source (and that one i cant install becuz some files are needed that i dont seem to have). I had to go in to 2.4.20-18 and install the driver there (i hade 2.4.20-18.9 on my computer but i dual boot with windows so i get to choose when i start up)...but then i can only use it in the 2.4.20-18 kernel...and in 2.4.20-18.9 i cant even install it as i said...

forgot to add the log file:

4363). As part of installing this driver (version: 1.0-4363), the existing

this means that the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for

i just tried a different iso image and it worked, and i noticed someone saying that they have got this problem too, and they realized they didn't issue the "binary" command in ftp before downloading...
so greggen if you type as root:
/sbin/lsmod |grep loop and you see a result, then you obviously have the module loaded...
so as in my case, i recommend you try another image.
a good way to see if the file is good is to do this:
(should of thought of this at the beginning)
file name.iso
if it is a good file then it will say:
name.iso: ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data
and if its not it will say:
name.iso: data
hope this helps!

ok install the 18.9 source in the version u use at the minute. The file you need i believe is this assuming you use the i686 architechture (amd/p4):

ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/sites/ftp.red...-18.9.i686.rpm

Install it from gnome/kde, then boot in using the newer kernel, and recompile your nvidia driver to the newer kernel.

Why not boot windows, and copy the cd to a directory then simply access that directory from linux.

the kernel src will allow u to recompile the nvidia driver for 18.9

The source is needed only if you need to recompile stuff for a particular kernel or if you wish to recompile your kernel to include something new.

well i am glad you found out its file type now you won't have to rip your hair out with that file anymore :P...
anyways to make an iso you can issue a command such as:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/tmp/game.iso
of course thats just a broad example and you'll have to fill in the blanks with the correct information, but you'll get the idea with the basic structure of the command i gave you.
or if its a directory or file on your machine you could issue something like:
mkisofs -o /tmp/cd.iso /home/user/directory..
