Mount ISO with read/write access

Hi all!
okay i've been searching the web for over 2 1/2 hours now trying to find out if i can mount an iso image in such a way as to allow me to write to it.

Is there anything in slackware that will allow me to do this?

No. In fact, there's not anything anywhere that will allow you to directly do that. In general, you have to mount the iso with loop, copy the iso contents to a directory which is read/writable and make a new iso from there with mkisofs.

Check out isomaster to see if it will do what you want. I haven't tried it, but has a script for it.
