Ummm....
well, i believe you can't. What you can do though is convert the bin file to ISO and mount it from there. Basically get a program called "bchunk" and convert. After that you just mount the image to some folder. Don't forget that you need to specifu the filesystem :

mount -t iso9660 /whatever /whatever

There must be a solution besides converting to iso's.

The way I am doing it now is to mount the bin/cue via vmware with win2k & alcohol 120% and share that so I can reach it with linux.

Are there no apps such as alcohol in linux?

in an identical thread yesterday someone said you should be able to just mount a bin the same way as an iso. never had a bin file to test this with though.

mount -o- loop -t iso9660 file.bin /mnt/bum

Here is what I get:

# mount -o loop -t iso9660 gis3-x-streem.bin /mnt/iso

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0, or too many mounted file systems

instead for the file system use auto maybe kernel can determine the file system and mount it.
