i been easedropping on this thread and thought i would try mounting one
My results are disappointing to say the least, this iso file was created
and burned successfully to cdrom.
amd2000# mount /usr/home/vagner/cd1.iso /mnt
mount: /usr/home/vagner/cd1.iso: Block device required
amd2000# mount_msdos /usr/home/vagner/cd1.iso /mnt
mount_msdos: /usr/home/vagner/cd1.iso: Block device required
amd2000# mount_cd9660 /usr/home/vagner/cd1.iso /mnt
mount_cd9660: /usr/home/vagner/cd1.iso: Block device required
never tried this before so i think i must be doing something wrong.
