    You actually have a handy-dandy piece of system services that allows you to mount ISO images directly: Loopback filesystems.

    Here's your commandline (as root user, preferably via sudo):

    Code:
    mount -t iso9660 -o loop disk1.iso /mnt/disk
    Substitute disk1.iso and /mnt/disk accordingly. Enjoy.

    cdemu is much better in that regard. it can also mount 2352byte sector images, not only iso9660 images.

    That's just a GUI front end to the loopback device...
