Step 1 : Become the super user
Step 2 : make a directory where you want to mount the image file e.g. cd /mnt
Step 3 : mount the iso file as: mount -o loop filename.iso /mnt/dir
A loop device is a pseudo-device that makes a file accessible as a block device. Loop devices are often used for CD ISO images and floppy disc images. Mounting a file containing a filesystem via such a loop mount makes the files within that filesystem accessible. They appear in the mount point directory using above commands.
whoa your done ! congrats you've just mounted an iso file in linux without any extra software!

The next problem i faced was that the quick launch icon on my desktop couldn't find any such process so i followed as:
System->Preferences->Look and Feel->Main Menu->Internet
then right click on the firefox option and on the properties part add the path to the new firefox file in the command option and there you go!
hope this was useful
Be open and spread openware!

I too joined the long run but it was too late.There was no water in the hostel and then Ravi,Anand and I decided that we must venture out other halls for they should be our only rescue.We went to hall 6, the best of halls,but to our despair,the condition there was no good.
Finally we went to hall 3 and by God's grace, we could finally answer to Nature's call and take bath.. Oh! how do they live without water in some places? Come on folks,it's high time that start taking these things seriously.Use water wisely!

So here's a solution to your problem: Download the .rpm or .tar.gz package from the adobe site and extract it. After browsing through the folders, you would find a file named "libflashplayer.so ". Next,make a directory named "plugins" in /usr/lib/firefox (Note: make this directory in the newest version of firefox if you have updated firefox e.g there might be firefox 3.0.5 and firefox 3.0.10, so make the directory in firefox 3.0.10 ) Just copy this fle into /usr/lib/firefox/plugins.. Close your broswer and restart it ,then check by typing "about:plugins" in the address bar of your browser,you will find a heading "Shockwave Flash"... Well thats it, it done! ... try opening youtube and see a vedio ! hope that helps.......
