To mount an .iso, just click on it in rox. I haven't heard of the other ones you mention.

There is CDemu, which is exactly what you are asking for. But it requires python and things and includes a kernel module which will need to be recompiled against any new kernel that you get if you upgrade puppy.

And I can't think of any reason why you would need a drive emulator. Are you sure you do?

Is there a specific reason why you can't just make .iso files with Pburn or something, and click on them to mount them?
If you have some mdf files, there is a program to convert these to .iso files, which we could package for you...

This command works with both ISO and MDF images.

Just mounting the .mdf image as a iso9660 image didn’t work for me. I’ve used mdf2iso to convert it first.

And read all the other comments there too...

Also check out Acetoneiso http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=258936#258936
I'm not sure if the fuseiso module would be kernel specific - I don't think it is an actual kernel module.

I personally would like "proof" that it would even work -that means a minimum of 57.15% or "100 proof" using the original definition or 114.30 using today's standard.
