Mounting ISO's

mounting ISO is like having a virtual drive in linux ^_^

if you have and ISO file(a CD image which have ISO extension) and want to mount it to your hard drive.

do the following:
1. go to your terminal
2. type "su"
---su stands for Super User
---(note: you must have/know the password for root)
3. type the command "mount -o loop filename.iso /directory"
---the "filename.iso is the file which contains the image file and the "directory" is the destination where you will put the content of the image file

thats it. ^_^

Enjoy Mounting!!!!
