iso image in Debian Etch


I've downloaded an iso image in my Debian Etch.
I want to read/copy the files in the iso image.

Is there any command line package to mount the iso?
or
Copy the files from iso directly?

Thanks for your help.
The reference is very useful.

However, I've got a question.
The mount command can only be used by root.
Is it normal?
or
Can I mount an iso image by general users?

Thanks.

Generally mount can only be used by root but sometimes users can be given permissions to mount devices by configuring various device options in /etc/fstab or using sudo. I don't know of a way of mounting an iso as a normal user, but other members may.
