Opening NRG, BIN and ISO files

Does anybody know how to open .nrg, bin or iso files in slackware?
I've heard you can mount iso files like cd rom drives using the mount command, but I don't know anything about the other formats.

I've tried installing cdemu but I get all sorts of errors when I try to run it.
When installing the latest version I get this error:
(as root I run make)

make -C /lib/modules/2.4.26/build SUBDIRS=/home/herve/dls/cdemu-0.7 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.26'
make -C /home/herve/dls/cdemu-0.7 CFLAGS="-D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux-2.4.26/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i486 -DMODULE" MAKING_MODULES=1 modules
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/herve/dls/cdemu-0.7'

cdemu.c:728: error: `cdemu_block_ioctl' undeclared here (not in a function)
cdemu.c:728: error: initializer element is not constant
cdemu.c:728: error: (near initialization for `cdemu_bdops.ioctl')
make[2]: *** [cdemu.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/herve/dls/cdemu-0.7'
make[1]: *** [_mod_/home/herve/dls/cdemu-0.7] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.26'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I have no clue what that means.
Anyway, I tried installing an older version (0.5)
all worked well, I even ran the modprobe cdemu command at the end with no errors.
The problem happens when I try to run the program:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/cdemu", line 45, in ?
import libcdemu
ImportError: No module named libcdemu

Again, I have no clue what that means.

So, I've pretty much given up on cdemu, are there any other programs that can handle bin and nrg files?

How about MountISO, it's a KDE app. I wanted to compile it myself but didn't find the time to check this program. Sounds like it should be fine for you.

EDIT: forgot Link because of fever (sic!)

I have used an older version of cdemu (before the python stuff) and it worked very good.

But you can try other programs too.

1) ISO
no program needed
use "mount -o loop file.iso /mount_point"
replace "file.iso" and "mount_point" with yours

2) Nero nrg
Use nrg2iso to make it iso and then mount it using 1)

Burn in cd and then mount
with cdrecord (cuesheet=file.cue) or cdrdao
Or convert to iso and then use 1)
There are many utils to do it.
One of them is bchunk

i found the solution

copy the file to the same folder that cdemu is in (on my system /usr/bin).

works fine after that.
