You can mount the iso and use something like this (from man mplayer):
mplayer dvd://1 -dvd-device /path/to/directory/

You can mount ISOs with the following command:

mount -o loop -t iso9660 /ISO/SUSE10DVD.ISO /mnt/susedvd

Where /ISO/SUSE10DVD.ISO is the directory to and the immage I want to mount and /mnt/susedvd is the directory where I mounted the immage.
