Mounting ISO Images in Linux


Hey guys, under Windows - I have alcohol 120% to mount ISO images to virtual drives. Basically, I want to mount Disk-Something.mdf (or .iso) to /mnt/cdrom. What is the way to do this in linux? -Bill

You must have loopback support from your kernel for it to work.

there is also a script called "Mount ISO image" that can let you mount an iso by right clicking on it

Cool Stuff - Does anyonw know about the .mdf format Alcohol rips images in? (It does all types, but I have a bunch in mdf before I thought I should stick to iso) Can Linux mount those?
