Mount ISO Image under Linux

Sometimes for various reasons we wish to mount ISO directly from the OS, in Linux the process is really simple and doesn't require any 3rd party tool like Window's "Daemon Tools" or "Alcohol"...
Lets see how it's done in 4 easy steps:

1)First become root:

#su -

2)Next, create the folder where the ISO will be extracted:
#mkdir /mnt/iso

3)Mount the ISO with:

mount -o loop CentOS-5.5-x86_64-bin-DVD-1of2.iso /mnt/iso/


4)Browse to folder:
#ls -F /mnt/iso

Quick & Easy!
Enjoy ;)
