I don't know what "alcohol 120% is... but I'm guessing you want to mount a .iso image?

try:

mount -o loop /path/to/file.iso /mnt/mountpoint

Thanks

I think, IIRC, that .nrgs are made by nero, no? So I don't think it's at all possible to mount them

AcetoneIso

there's a software which u can use to open most of the formats... it's called Acetoneiso and u can find it at

http://www.acetoneiso.netsons.org/

u need fuseiso though configured for your user to make it work though... but u can find info on how to that in the site above... it's a very good software.... I heard something about a software called cdemu, and there's a gui version called kcdemu, it integrates to the kde systray, unfortunatelly it's only for kde, and I use gnome, so i couldn't test that function yet... good luck there

There's also a program called 'iat' that can convert different kind of image files to standard .iso images.

There's a neat way to mount .iso images within your filemanager using fuseiso. There's a good howto for Xfce/Thunar (for Debian type distros) Ubuntu/Debian XFCE/Thunar + fuseiso9660 = Quickly mount ISOs! and one for Gnome (again for Debian/derivatives) Setting Up and Using fuseiso

For KDE I believe you'd use kfuseiso (surprise).

I use Debian Lenny, Xfce and Thunar and it's quick and easy to mount/unmount .iso images from Thunar's right click context menus. I already had fuse installed for ntfs-3g, sshfs and encfs and it's a great tool.

Well, and, what if I have a dvd iso, for example, and I want to to play it without mounting or burning, what can be done?
Is there any device driver that can do the trick?

Thanks!

If you mean movies then vlc and mplayer play dvd iso images, so does totem in some distributions. I'm pretty sure that kaffeine can do this too.
