To mount a disk image on [[FreeBSD]]:
First attach the image to unit #1:
  # mdconfig -a -t vnode -f /big3/project/images/img/67.img -u 1
Then mount:
  # mount -t msdos /dev/md1s1 /mnt
  # ls /mnt
To unmount:
  # umount /mnt
  # mdconfig -d -u 1
To mount the image read-only, use:
  # mdconfig -o readonly -a -t vnode -f /big3/project/images/img/67.img -u 1
  # mount -o ro -t msdos /dev/md1s1 /mnt
= Linux =
==To mount a disk image on [[Linux]]==
# mount -t vfat -o loop,ro,noexec img.dd /mnt
The '''''ro''''' is for read-only.
This will mount NSRL ISOs:
  # mount /home/simsong/RDS_218_A.iso /mnt/nsrl -t iso9660 -o loop,ro,noexec
Some raw images contains multiple partitions (e.g. full HD image). In this case, it's necessary to specify a starting offset for each partition.
# mount -t vfat -o loop,offset=32256,ro,noexec img.dd /mnt/tmp_1
# mount -t vfat -o loop,offset=20974464000,ro,noexec img.dd /mnt/tmp_2
Mounting raw images with multiple partitions is easy with ''kpartx''. Type ''aptitude install kpartx'' as root to install ''kpartx'' under Debian. ''kpartx'' is creating device-mappings for each partition. If the raw image looks like this:
        Device        Boot      Start      End      Blocks Id  System
    rawimage.dd1              1          1        8001  83  Linux
    rawimage.dd2              2          2        8032+  5  Extended
    rawimage.dd5              2          2        8001  83  Linux
creates the command
#  kpartx -v -a rawimage.dd
this mappings
The Partitions can now mount easy with
# mount /dev/mapper/loop0p1 /media/suspectHD_01/ -o ro
# mount /dev/mapper/loop0p5 /media/suspectHD_02/ -o ro
Don't forget the switch '''''-o ro''''' !
==To unmount==
# umount /mnt
