To mount an image to a certain folder in ubuntu, you do have to mount as root. To do so, add "sudo" to the beginning of the line you just typed in the terminal and hit enter. It should ask you for a password, which is the same one you use to login. Hope this helps :D...

Just remember, "sudo" to run a command in the terminal as root, and use "gksudo" to run an application, say for example nautilus (the file manager), as root...
