Here's an example I used with a recent download. I put it into a folder which was already made.

mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 puppy-0.9.7-firefox.iso /home/test

don't forget to unmount when you are done....
umount /home/test

ok that was not the bigger link i was thinking about so here is the laydown for you in basic steps:

1. mkdir sharepoint
2. mount -o loop file.img /sharepoint
3. access files just like you would if they were native on your local box.


mkdir movie
mount -o loop movie.iso /movie
cd /movie
