virtual mounting ?

on windows, i have a program called daemon, its basically a virtual cd to mount .bin/.cue files on to a virtual cd-rom so u dun have to burn them (to save cds)

i was wondering if there is a program that does it in linux?

well, unless you need to use the .bin/.cue files to get over some sort of copy protection, you should convert those files to .iso so you can mount them natively with mount -t iso9660 -o loop file.iso /mnt/directory

to convert, use kiso (very much like winiso)

to avoid problems with install, make sure you use
./configure --prefix=/usr/local (even though the program still won't install there...); you may need to specify your kde install directory as well (normally /opt/kde)

and there is also a daemon-tools-like program in the form of a kernel module for linux, called cd-emu
the page has all the info you need to install and use it
