Linux calls it iso9660, FreeBSD calls is cd9660, same thing.
The freebsd command that does the same thing is as follows:

mount -t cd9660 /dev/`mdconfig -a -t image.iso` /mnt

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
