Should I mount it on /mnt or I can mount it elsewhere.I can see a file INSTALL which the manual says to run.
Should I reboot the machine on mounting it to /mnt or just run the script.

Pls Help

You can create a directory anywhere convenient to you, and mount it there. No reboot required after mounting, just cd to the folder once you've typed the command above and you'll see the contents.

Woah. You can't install a new OS (or run a LiveCD) from a locally mounted folder. You'll need to burn it to a CD and reboot your machine. I guess there are ways to do a network install too, but I haven't tried them and you'd need a second machine for that anyway.
Burn it to a CD/DVD, that's the most straightforward way.
The local mounting option would only be useful for looking at and copying some of the files, but not for actually installing it from the mount point.

How can I unmount the iso .I tried earlier mounting that to /opt and now I am not able to delete it.

Code:
[root@isd opt]# rm -fr *
rm: cannot remove `InstallCD': Read-only file system
rm: cannot remove `UpgradeCD': Read-only file system
rm: cannot remove `br': Read-only file system
rm: cannot remove `rr_moved': Read-only file system
rm: cannot remove `tools': Read-only file system
rm: cannot remove `ud': Read-only file system
[root@isd opt]#
Any Idea??

you run the umount command to unmout filesystems, you don't delete stuff in the mountpoint
