Mounting the ISO Images

Mounting the ISO Images

The next step is to mount the ISO image file. Let’s create a directory under /mnt to place the mounted file.

bash# cd /mnt
bash# mkdir iso
bash# cd iso
bash# mkdir mndrk81

Now mount the ISO image file to this newly created directory

bash# mount -o loop,unhide -t iso9660 -r /home/image/mndrk81.iso /mnt/iso/mndrk81


The “-o loop” means use the option that mounts a file as a block device. The unhide option shows hidden files. The “-t iso9660” means that the file is in the iso9660 CD-ROM format. The “-r” means to mount read-only.
