[TIP] Mount ISO Image File on Linux

Once you’ve downloaded an ISO image file, you can mount it as a loopback device. This will give you access to the files in the ISO without having to burn it to a CDROM first.

mount -o ro,loop image.iso /mnt/iso/

    the read-only option is redundant, just
    # mount -o loop image.iso /mnt/iso/
    will do.

    Also you can mount any filesystem image, not just ISO images with that command.
