I'm dissapointed in all of you for not suggesting the possibility of
mounting the images as loopback devices :)
mount -t iso9660 -o loop 6.1-i386.iso /mnt/cdrom
I believe redhat usually mounts CDs on /mnt/cdrom, so the directory should
be there, & stuff should work.  I think I got the syntax correct.
