I have renamed It now to a shorter name so i tried that and here is the result (i ttok it you meant remove the spaces in the filename as you enter the command)

"cd
kurt@kurt-bedroom:~$ mkdir iso_mount
mkdir: cannot create directory `iso_mount': File exists
kurt@kurt-bedroom:~$ sudo mount -o loop /home/kurt/backup/EmpireearthIII/EmpireearthIII.iso ./iso_mount
/home/kurt/backup/EmpireearthIII/EmpireearthIII.iso: No such file or directory
kurt@kurt-bedroom:~$ ls iso_mount
kurt@kurt-bedroom:~$ "

maybe i just fail

Your major clue is
Code:
/home/kurt/backup/EmpireearthIII/EmpireearthIII.iso: No such file or directory
Sure you changed it correctly?

Guess its installed then, in which case I have no clue why you aren't able to save your WPA key. Are you using NetworkManager? This is the default network tool.

Remember.. Spaces!

To escape a space, you use a backslash. so try:
Code:
ls /home/kurt/backup/installers/Empire\ earth\ III
Backslashes escape everything/anything.

But okay, so change your mount command to the right location, as in 'backup/installers', not 'backup/'

Remember, if you need the spaces, escape the spaces with a backslash, but okay, let us know whether you can mount

No help, but I feel the need to give linuxnewb1 a thumbs up for not giving up after 25 posts.
