mount iso image

mount iso image
I would like to mount an iso CD image on my Suse linux (SLES 9), the image has been copied to my suse linux machine.

am able to mount the iso image manually by

mount -oloop /iso/SLES-9-i386-CD1.iso /free

but I would like to put the above entry in /etc/fstab so that when the machine is rebooted, the image will be mounted automatically.

How can i mount the iso image automatically with the option mount -oloop in /etc/fstab the CD image has been copied locally.

Can you help? please

Add this to your fstab:

/iso/SLES-9-i386-CD1.iso    /free   iso9660   loop,auto   0 0
In theory this should work. Tell me if it did
