Re: [PLUG] Job searching continues

mounting an iso image in your directory tree is easy:

mount /tmp/file.iso /mnt/image/ -t iso9660 -o loop=/dev/loop0
 ^          ^           ^             ^         ^
 |          |           |             |         |
 |          |           |             |          loop0 or loop1 or...
 |          |           |             |
 |          |           |             File type is iso9660 for iso
 |          |           |             images
 |          |           |
 |          |           This directory should already exist
 |          |
 |          Filename of the iso image
 should be root to do this

Then, just cd to /mnt/image and run the install from the appropriate
directory on the image.

I don't know of any Linux methods offhand, but I know it's doable in Windows. I'd think it would be possible to do a remote install from the image, but that's just a guess.

The demands for war are loudest among "conservatives" and
"neoconservatives," who for some reason appear less interested in
conserving than destroying. Such people should really be called
"destructives." They don't even regard war as a regrettable necessity;
they have a childish enthusiasm for it, and they think their readiness
to slaughter foreigners proves their love of America. These
pseudo-patriots, who claim to speak for American virtue, are the people
we should really be wary of.
