Sorry i dont understand the question, it sounds as if you have burned iso file on the cd as data, it should be just the cd.

Do you see the ISO in ubnutu or do you see it on the cd ? in the exteral operating system?
if the data is in an iso format you dont need to mount it just run the extracation tool to extract the file system

I did use puppy linux 3 years until end of 2006. after that, I did find a wunderfull Indonesian distro named Kuliax. Also of your country. Kuliax offers a great choice of programs of only 1 ISO-CD. Kuliax works really good as live-CD. The installation of Kuliax on the hardisk is very fast (10 minutes!) and you can choice between 2 installation methods (like the Kuliax CD or like Debian installation)

All works properly. On the PC from my wife, we use Kuliax (after 3 years of puppy linux) and will continue to use Kuliax.

On my PC, I will change again because Kuliax (and probably Debian) limits me to much with the access rights (and also because I don't like KDE): I can't login as "root" and for this reason have extrem difficulties to change the settings in my PC as I do usually. I did write about this problem in the messages board of Kuliax but did get no answer. But I see that all people in this messages board write in Bahasa Indonesia and I not. Probably it is the reason...

As you are Indonesian, I recommend you to have a look for Kuliax! It is a really good and interessting system depending of you usage of Linux...

Good luck!
