Mount disc images in Linux

by krisrowland

Did you know that you can use the mount command to mount disc images in Linux (well, I’ve at least done it in Ubuntu 8.04). All you have to do is specify the loop option. e.g.:

$ mount -o loop path-of-image mount-point-path

An example:

$ mount -o loop ~/pride-and-prejudice.iso ~/movie

So easy! Thanks to this openSUSE blog entry for showing me (I’m trying to install openSUSE on my Dell Mini 9 via a USB stick – should work by the looks ^^ ).
