FreeBSD

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
 BOOTLOG.PRV     BOOTLOG.TXT     COMMAND.COM     IO.SYS          MSDOS.SYS

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=/dev/loop0 img.dd /mnt

-or-

# mount -t vfat -o loop=/dev/loop/0 img.dd /mnt


To unmount

# umount /mnt

To mount the image read-only, use:

# mount -t vfat -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 img.dd /mnt
