    Mounting ISO image file.

    Hey guys, well heres my problem and I thought somebody from here may be able to help.

    Using Helix (bootable linux cd) im trying to mount an image file so I can investigate its contents etc. The file is currently an .iso file, and determining the file system is not working correctly as it just recognises it as a Bourne shell script.

    Using the "head" command, the lines that come up are...

    #V2.0 Format
    modprobe cloop file=$0 && mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/cloop $1
    exit $?"

    Now, just wondering if anyone knows the way to mount this device, obviously in helix there is no /dev/cloop, so just wondering on how I would go about changing the file heading to get the image to mount under Helix. Its version 1.7 im using of helix. Thanks any help or suggestions or links to places of assistance appreciated.

    Try, as root:
    mount -o loop <.iso file> /mount/point
    mount -o loop myiso.iso /mnt

    I was told elsewhere that the ISO 9660 standard isnt included in the kernal? so this could be an issue? so you cant modify the file to mount it?
