Default Mount .iso images in gui
Is there a gui app for mounting iso images such as Furius iso mount? If not what are the correct commands for mounting and unmounting a iso image in command line for PC-BSD 9.0?

Thanks 4 Help

I'm not aware of a way of mounting ISOs via GUI, but maybe there is a kioslave for KDE.
However in the terminal something like the following should suffice to mount the iso:
mdconfig -a -t vnode -f /path/to/image.iso -u 99
mount -t cd9660 /dev/md99 /mnt/cdrom
and to umount and destroy the memory disk
mount -u /mnt/cdrom
mdconfig -d -u 99
But having a look at the mdconfig man page you can also do something like:
mount -t cd9660 /dev/`mdconfig -f  /path/to/image.iso` /mnt/cdrom
Never tried it...
