Mounting .bin CD images as drives


I want to create a virtual drive in SuSE 9.1 Professional. I have my .bin file located on my windows partition, the path to is is this: "/windows/D/downloaded stuff/Turbo C++ 4.5.bin". How can I make Linux see the files within this image?

Thanks!

1) If you are running KDE, check out Mount ISO Image. I think that's what you're looking for.

2) If you are not running KDE, or just don't like the Mount ISO Image, then search for bin2iso and convert the .bin file to an .iso file, and mount is the traditional way:

Code:
mount -o loop filename.iso /mnt/isoimage
And of course, /mnt/isoimage has to be an existing empty directory.

If it's a bin file, first you must convert it into an iso file, otherwise won't mount.
There's a little program called bchunk (http://he.fi/bchunk/) that will transform the files.
Then, use the command suggested above.

No, with that program you actually don't, but you do need a c.ue file for every .bin file. I've decided not to bother, just mount it in windows using alcohol 120%, and copy the files to a FAT32 filesystem, and retrieve them using Linux. Method works though. Thanks.

You can also use the program bchunk to convert bin -> iso.. works like a charm for me!
