Hello cola,

You should now by now, looking at your post count, that LQ isn't the place to come to for complete step by step, copy/paste, howto guides. If you have the possibility to burn the image to CD then do that. If not, you can mount it like this:
Code:
mount -o loop /path/to/iso /mnt/mountdir
Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Can you give some more detail in order to fully understand what you are trying to do? For instance, are you running from a LiveCD/DVD and trying to copy the contents of the CD to create a bootable invironment? Or are you running your OS from another partition/harddisk? What are you trying to achieve by mounting and copying the contents of the CD instead of burning the iso and booting from CD?

Kind regards,

Eric

I'm not burning the simplymepis.iso to a cd.
Trying to install from hard disk putting the .iso on a partition.

Haven't tried it yet, but there are much clearer instructions here, & they are for antiX, MEPIS' baby brother.

Check out http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php/Installing_MEPIS for a comprehensive installation documentation set and links to additional resources to help you out. If that is not enough, then check out http://www.mepislovers.org/, which has a forum to offer help. There are those who can direct you to specific pages or answer specific questions. The Wiki ought to have enough information; installation is really quite straightforward unless you have unusual or special requirements.
