Handling ISO images in linux/ubuntu 11.10

Using an ISO image on Ubuntu Linux is pretty easy. It can be done by just typing few commands in terminal.
Open up a terminal window and type in the following commands

sudo mkdir /media/iso

sudo modprobe loop

sudo mount filename.iso /media/iso -t iso9660 -o loop

That it now we should be able to navigate to the /media/iso folder and see the contents of the ISO image.
Now if we want to unmount the iso, use the following command:

sudo umount /media/iso

That's it.
If you  think it was plenty work. You can just install a software FURIOUS ISO MOUNT.
You can install using apt-get using the following command
sudo apt-get install furiusisomount
or by downloading the package. You can download it here.
