[HOW-TO] Mount ISO image as portable drive

Hi guys,

Today We will learn how to mount iso images in Linux via the loop device...

Steps to mount:

1) You must log in as a root user, if not root user then switch to root user using following command:

$ su -

2) Create the directory aka mount point:

 mkdir -p /mnt/disk

3) Use mount command as follows (assumes that your ISO file name is disk1.iso):

 mount -o loop disk1.iso /mnt/disk

4) Change directory to list it:

 cd /mnt/disk
 ls -l

Steps to unmount:

Just on step :p

umount /mnt/disk
