I've been having problems with the shocking PSTN system (ADSL is still largely experimental here) in OZ that means a download of FreeBSD ISO images takes over a week & even then they are often corrupted, so I'd like to be able to mount the image to see if its OK before wasting any more CD blanks.
I followed the instructions given on this site, put the image file in /var/ftp/incoming, cd'd to that directory & confirmed that the ISO file was there ....... but apparently there's more to it than is suggested. The name of the ISO image here is "4.2-install.iso" so following instructions given I entered
"vnconfig /dev/vn0c ./4.2-install.iso" , then
"mount -t cd9660 /dev/vn0c /cdrom"
"mount: /cdrom: No such file or directory"
Well of course ..... the machine doesn't have a CD drive, but even if it did there certainly wouldn't be a CD in the thing anyway.
So what gives ........ obviously the last line is incorrect but I can't figure what should be used
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
