Installing SUSE 9.3 without burning a DVD but from ISO image

I don't have a DVD burner and DVD ROM drive. Also my internet connection is not fast enough to make an FTP installation. I have downloaded DVD ISO image. How can I install SUSE 9.3 under these constraints?

Boot with a simple one or two disc distribution, such as Basiclinux.
Create a folder called /media/iso, or anything else that suits your fancy...
then type:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /media/iso
You should then be able to find the install files from there.
