    What are you trying to mount? If you're trying to mount an .iso file, I only know how to do it from the command line:
    Code:
    mkdir tmpiso
    sudo mount -o loop your_file.iso tmpiso
    That's assuming you're in the same dir as the ISO image and want to mount it in a folder called "tmpiso". When you're all done with it:
    Code:
    sudo umount tmpiso

    o.k. i may be stupid but i'm in the terminal and need to go into a folder, i think this might be out of my league at the moment, i typed "dir" and surprisingly was a command, now would "goto" b right

    Re: help with iso

    to 'change directory' do

    Code:
    cd
    the terminal stars off in your home folder. if your iso is in a folder called 'banana' you'd do
    Code:
    cd banana
    if your iso is say, in another partition called 'frog' you may want to select the absolute path
    Code:
    cd /media/frog/

    I used two nautilus scripts to mount and umount an iso; works great.
