This is great, if you don’t have the DVD hardware, but need to get the data.
The following show an example of mounting the Fedora core 7 DVD as a file.
# mkdir /iso
# mount -o loop -t iso9660 /FC7-i386-DVD.iso /iso
Or to mount automatically at boot, add the following to “/etc/fstab”
/FC7-i386-DVD.iso /iso iso9660 ro,loop 0 0
