Well I found what I thought was a really handy way of easily mounting an .iso image on your Linux machine.
Check this out..
sudo mkdir -p /media/cdrom
sudo mount -o loop ~/Desktop/name_of_iso_file.iso /media/cdrom
You should now be able to access the .iso file data as if it was a physical CD-ROM 🙂
Hope someone finds this post useful 🙂
