    And you have to be root. – dave Mar 13 '10 at 18:02
  • This is correct. @Neuquino: Mark tur1ng's answer as accepted once you verify it works. – Alex Mar 13 '10 at 21:17

    @dave if you mount it to a directory your user has access to, you do not need to be root for example "mkdir cdimage; mount -t iso9660 -o loop FILE.ISO cdimage" will work without needing to be root. – Justin Smith Mar 14 '10 at 0:50
