NAME
       mount_image - Mount a disk image

SYNOPSIS
       mount_image filesystem-type image-file mount-point

DESCRIPTION
       The  mount_image	command	mounts a disk image, such as a ISO 9660	CD/DVD
       image file or a FAT (msdos) image on the	directory "mount-point".

       The filesystem-type argument must match the name	of  one	 of  FreeBSD's
       filesystem  specific  mount commands.  For example, FreeBSD's mount_ms-
       dosfs would be used to mount a FAT filesystem, so to mount a  FAT  disk
       image, use

       mount_image msdosfs filename mount-point

       The process involves creating a memory disk image using mdconfig, which
       must be detached	using mdconfig in order	to release the resources.

       Hence, images mounted using mount_image should always be	unmounted  us-
       ing umount_image, which automatically detaches the correct memory disk.

NOTES
       The  FreeBSD tar	command	is capable of extracting cd9660	ISO images, so
       it is unnecessary to mount them if your goal is to copy their contents.

       mat.  (man diff for more	information)
