These few days i’m playing around with Xen Hypervisors. Downloaded CentOS 5 iso image, Fedora 7 iso image and Debian iso image. So to avoid wasting too much CD to burn these image, linux provide a way to mount these iso image file and let you access the files in the iso image instantly.
Below is the way to mount iso image file:-
- Before you start to mount your iso image, you need to ensure the folder /mnt/isoimage is available, if /mnt/isoimage is not available just create one using command below:-
- Once isoimage directory is available, you can use the command below to mount your iso image
# mount -o loop -t iso9660 centos-5.0.iso /mnt/isoimage/
- You just mount your iso image file to /mnt/isoimage successfully. To access your iso image files, go to /mnt/isoimage
Once you finish using your files, below is the way to unmount your iso image:-
# umount /mnt/isoimage
