If the iso is messed up, you need to re-download it, preferably using a decent download manager. If the game works in win98, then just copy the cd to a directory in said os.

this maybe a stupid questino, but when you issued that command, where you logged in as root?

Im all out of answers. When i install redhat i always install development tools, so i have kernel source installed by default.

Is it possible for you to install the rpm from gnome or kde?

Whew, what a mouthful in this thread...

Ok, so post up:
cat /proc/devices
You'll probably wanna pipe that to less, or to a text file, let's choose less for the example:
cat /proc/devices

If loop is listed, then we've now taken care of that, the loop device exists, so we move on.
Are you mounting as root? You must be root to mount. If you are root, we move on.
Your syntax, make sure it follows this format:
mount -t iso9660 -o loop /path/to/file.iso /path/to/mount/point
For me, here's what I get:
Code:
bash-2.05a# mount -t iso9660 -o loop test.iso /mnt/cdrom
bash-2.05a# ls /mnt/cdrom/
cdi  ext  mpegav  segment  vcd
bash-2.05a#
Again, make sure you are root.

Check all those steps, if you have loopback support in your kernel, which you most likely do, this has got to work (without the requirement of a kernel upgrade).

Cool

im not sure if you can add the development section of the cd after you have installed, let me check it out and get back to you.

Yes you can, it's just a whole lotta work, outside the gui anyway. Some of the graphical tools which are front ends for RPM have it split up into sections, you just check everything in your "dev" section to get it all installed.



Cool
