Or you could use Daemon tools - http://www.daemon-tools.cc which does the same thing and is NOT a trial version or limited use in any way..... and it's free too :D

You mean by bootable like operations system on it. lol and it should be just fine becuase iso is just a copy of the orginal disk so yes it should be alright.

Actually if your trying to boot off this DVD it most definitely will not work. This is because an existing operating system has to run the program that mounts the DVD image if it's not burned to disk.

You might be able to boot it off Grub. It would require editing the configuration file. I'll look into it, but it would be best to know what your trying to boot.

Edit. Looked into it, and I don't think it'll work. The Grub site has a demo configuration for a floppy with an existing kernel in it and I can see that working. But I can't think of any way to boot off a DVD image on an exiting drive. Frankly I belive it's quite impossible to do it easily.

Good luck.
