    mounting ISO files
    Is there a way to mount an ISO file, by renaming it or something? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I am looking to download an application that is rather large, and I already have the app, but as an ISO.

    Macs can mount disk images without the use of any applications. It's built into the Operating System.

    I agree, you can double click on the file, and the installer opens. HOWEVER, I already have said program installed (from someone else's disc), and just want to play the game, not install it. On this note, when i tried to re-install from the .iso file, and used the other persons code, it wouldn't allow me. what's the problem here?

    One possibility - If the game is a copy protected game, you'll run into problems as making an ISO of a given game usually ignores the copy protection areas that verifies that the game is authentic.

    You should be able to mount ISO and DMG files just by double-clicking them (unless some other program has associated itself with those filetypes).
    There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
