You can always mount them manually. Taken from TLDP:
Quote:
Linux has the ability to mount files as if they were disk partitions. This feature is useful to check that the directory layout and file access permissions of the CD image matches your wishes. Although media is very cheap today, the writing process is still time consuming, and you may at least want to save your time by doing a quick test.

To mount the file cd_image created above on the directory /cdrom, give the command

mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 cd_image /cdrom
HTH

To simplify your task(a nubie) and do away with just this command:
#mount image.iso mountpoint -o loop

Since you seem to be a GUI lover, probably this tool would help you out, I haven't tried it but it Google 0.21 seconds to find out one:
http://kiso.sourceforge.net/

Also if you get stuck up actually trying to get the above tool to work, you can try out this command line utility which will work for sure.

Not real familar with MDF. However, they are music files and not a data filesystem so can not be mounted via a loop.

I found some links that might help.

They shouldn't be music files cause I made that image from a data disk with alcohol 120 (It's on image from a Cossacks CD) You know I simply hate it when I want to play something and I always have to insert a disk... so thats why I always use images under windows and i mounted them with Daemontools witout any problem...
@nitinatindore: I'm not so crazy for the GUI actually I wrealy like the command line the problem is that I don't understand some features (commands etc)yet so good but I'm learning...
Thanks guys for the tips I'm gonna chek them out soon as I got enough time and reply after that if they worked or not...

It will not work unless you have loop back device support compiled in your kernel. I guess you get it so precompiled with mandrake.

You can check the .config file in /usr/src/linux/ , you can run 'make menuconfig' to see if that options is enabled (look somewhere under device options, don't have time now to check) but the easiest thing to do is to simple run

mount -o loop /path.iso /mnt/cdrom

If /mnt/cdrom is the place where you mount cdrom. i am not sure, but thats somwhere else by mandrake. try to check /etc/fstab ( you can type 'vi /etc/fstab') and see if you can figure it out where is your cd to be mounted.

But you don't need to know where is your cd to be mounted. simply create a new folder 'mkdir /mnt/images' or something like that, and mount it there.

if that works you can access your iso image simply by typing 'cd /mnt/cdrom' (or /mnt/images). if you install a game or something like that, you can mount mount other image over the first one. don't forteg to unmount all of them when you are finished.
