Extract file from ISO images in Linux

(Question)

I have downloaded many ISO images of various Linux distributions and want to know how I can extract files from the ISO image. Please advise.

(Answer)

The ISO images can be mounted on your existing system, and the files and folders can be browsed. Here are the steps to do this.
First, create a directory where you want to mount the ISO image.

# mkdir /tmp/isomount

Mount the ISO as follows:

# Mount -o loop -t iso9660 /path/to/iso_image /tmp/isomount/
You can now browse the files and copy the ones you want to any other location for future use.
