Mount an ISO


I want to mount the ISO Image of FC3 which is lying in my ntfs partition

So while trying to mount the ISO , I am getting an error like this



Code:
[root@localhost root]# mount /mnt/win/FC3-i386-disc1.ISO /mnt/2/ -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0
ioctl: LOOP_SET_FD: Invalid argument
?

Hi,

Just to make sure:

- Do you have loop support enabled?
Ways to check:
ls -l /dev/loop*
or, if it's a module: lsmod | grep loop and modprobe loop

- If loop support is enabled: Can you mount iso's at all (residing on non ntfs partitions)?

mount <name.iso> <mount point> -o loop
that's all.

"mount point does not exist" error

First, make sure there is an existing subdirectory with the same name as the mount point---e.g., if you want to mount to /mnt/iso, first ensure that there is a subdirectory named "/mnt/iso" on your drive. This would be a subdirectory not used for normal file storage, but simply as a mount point in your filesystem onto which you want to hook the iso image.
