#  Introduction

NetBSD lets you mount ISO images using the [vnd(4)](http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-cgi?vnd+4+NetBSD-current) disk driver.   
The vnd driver provides a disk-like interface to a file. 

#  Mounting the Image 
    
    # vnconfig vnd0 v7x86-0.8a.iso                      
    # mount -t cd9660 /dev/vnd0a /mnt
    # cd /mnt
    # ls
    COPYRIGHT        README           boot.cat         v7x86-0.8a.tar   version
    INSTALL          RELNOTES         boot.img         v7x86intro.pdf
    

#  Unmounting the Image 
    
    # umount /mnt
    # vnconfig -u vnd0
