Creating and mounting iso images under linux is very easy.
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=filename.isoMounting:
sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/isoThe file endings iso, raw and cdr denote all iso files. Image files with the bin/cue ending, however, are not iso files. You can convert them into iso files with bchunk. bchunk needs the cue file to do this! Allthough some non-Linux burning applications (e.g. Toast Titanium for MacOS) can handle (burn and convert) the bin file without the cue file.
