I NEVER meant to say it's Linux's fault!!! Please don't misunderstand me, I'm just saying that if you use crappy software that makes strange, non standard iso files, don't pretend that Linux will solve your problem. It up to you to use that software (in that case Alcohol 120%) and make those iso files.
I think some people do not understand that Linux is different from Windows, but they pretend Linux to do the same as Windows does, while this is not possible. They're different, something you'll be able to do it, some don't.
If he/she does not want to convert mdf files into iso for fearing to loose CD protection, that means is some kind of warez and he/she shouldn't use them. There's no solution at all (AFAIK) to mount mdf files, moreover you can't mount bin files (that are more common).
The easiest (and I think the unique) solution is to boot to Windows, run Alcohol 120%, burn the image(s) and spent some blank CDs...
Once again, don't misunderstand this and/or the previous post as saying Linux sux for not having an app that understands those files....It's just the contrary, otherwise I wouldn't be using Linux for almost 3 years now
