How can i mount a ISO Image CD ?

You have an image of a CD or perhaps of a floppy disk. You may have downloaded it, or created it by reading a real device with "dd". Now you want to mount that image. You could write it back out to media and mount that, but that may not be convenient or even possible at the moment.

Burning Windows Readable CD's from your Mac   2012/10/09 TonyLawrence
- Mac OS X Tiger has a neat new feature for burning CD's: from the Finder's file menu, you choose New Burn Folder, and then drag whatever you want to burn into that new folder. Open the folder, and you'll notice a Burn button just above the files. Pop a blank CD in and click that to burn the files to cd. -

RIP:A System Recovery Boot CD   2015/04/05 TonyLawrence
- RIP:A System Recovery Boot CD. Since most people have to deal with Windows systems, there has to be a way to get at these systems when things go awry. I used to carry around a slew of boot floppies, and CD's from site to site, if someone was having trouble booting the system, after messing with a system file -
