For various reasons,you may want to use ISO images without burning them,and you just need to mount them in a easy way.

First,create a directory which you want to mount ISO images to by running following command in terminal:

sudo mkdir /media/ISOimage

Then,add the loop module to your kernel,so it is possible to mount a compressed filesystem file:

sudo modprobe loop

Now,use following command to mount ISO image:

sudo mount ubuntu-9.04-desktop-amd64.iso /media/ISOimage/ -t iso9660 -o loop

replace “ubuntu-9.04-desktop-amd64.iso”to your ISO image.
And,use the command to umount ISO image:

sudo umount /media/ISOimage

In following screen,I mounted a ISO image from a ntfs drive:


Go to /media/ISOimage,available contents in mounted ISO image will be present to you.
