There are several methods to pack a file. Post the file name and then we can tell you which method to use to unpack it.

IIRC you can mount an ISO-image just the as you mount your cdrom or partitions.

this is one of the more powerful tools i have found in linux vs windows.

just type the following line and replace the filename.iso with the correct path/name of your iso you want access to.

Code:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso
that should do it for you. then you can cd /mnt/iso and all the info should be right there for you.

addendum: Don't forget to create /mnt/iso first :-)

there is a gr8 script called "Mount ISO image" that lets u mount a .iso image simply by right clicking on it and choosing "Actions -> Manage ISO -> Mount Image" then the Image file will be mounted to folder on Desktop, the corresponding folder will be opened and raised
