How to mount iso cd images

I wanna see a divx on my Linux station, using xine.

I have already created the iso images using clonecd
under win98.

I was wondering if there is some kind of kind program which can help me at all.
I mean to help me to mount my iso images (two isos precisely)

(of course i can get inside my win98 partitions;
i'm working to became an idiot, but i'm not yet)

You can mount as many iso's as you'd like:
mount -o loop /home/whatever/image.iso /mnt/image

Of course /mnt/image will need to exist to mount something there:
mkdir /mnt/image

You can mount wherever, this is just my example.

ok! Got it!
Few questions more:

Any way to mount *.cue or *.img images instead?

Do I have to convert the images or something?

Either case, what programs could I use to do that?

from the console
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/whatever/myimage.iso

"if" is the "in file" or device that the data is coming from
"of" is the "out file"
dd copies it's source bit for bit which equals an ISO image in this case because the cdrom format is ISO.

Mount will use the files /dev/loopX. If you don't specify one then the first free one will be taken. So you can mount as many iso's as there are available /dev/loopX devices. Ofcourse if you run out you can always create more with mknod.

There is a utility called bchunk to convert a .cue file + .bin file to a normal iso image. But it depends on the contents of the image, it destroys some essential parts if you do it to an image of a VCD.
