Mounting an ISO image

Now, that’s a piece of trivia!

Sometimes I want to see what’s on an ISO image, so easiest will be to just mount it to a folder. I have been doing this occasionally since I started using Linux and I still do not remember the exact options. For example, to mount the ISO of SalixOS:

mount -o loop salix-xfce-14.1.iso /media/cdrom

There it is.
