mounting ISO images in AIX6.1

Recently, I had to access contents of few ISO images. Onces for a developer and next because I had to start learning RedHat….. Yes, the “acceptance” of the DarkSide in already in progress.
If your host operating system is AIX 6.1 or above this task is easily done utilizing the “new” command called – loopmount – what a meaningfull name indeed!

loopmount -i IBM_Install_Toolkit.iso -o "-o ro -V cdrfs" -m /mnt

Above, the ISO image will be mounted and accessed via the /mnt directory.
By the way, lately I dream about penguins … Why?
