View Full Version : Installing Diablo with Mounted Image

July 16th, 2009, 11:40 PM
Hi, I'm very new to linux and ubuntu. By new, I mean today. I'm trying to install Diablo 2 on my laptop which is running ubuntu. My issue is it doesn't have a cd drive, so I have to mount the isos' to do the installation. I just want to make sure, to mount the image

sudo mount -o loop /location_of/file.iso /media/cdrom

is what I would write into terminal? but obviously, changing the location of and file name.

If that is correct, is that the same as mounting an image on windows using daemon tools? the computer will recognize it as if a cd were in the drive?

Thank you for your help and patience with me :D

(by the way I'm on ubuntu 9.04 and wine 1.0.1)

Thanks for the info guys. Keep it up.

ha.. I'm not too discouraged. In class right now, but hoping to know what I'm going to be doing when I get home with this answer.

mount image
sudo mkdir /media/NameOfISO
sudo mount -o loop NameOfISO.iso /media/NameOfISO

unmount image
sudo umount /media/NameOfISO
sudo rmdir /media/NameOfISO

BTW The newest ver of wine is 1.1.25 though it should be 1.1.26 in a few hours.
