I have a nice, smooth flash drive which requires a mounting of a DVD ISO image for Slackware to install. For whatever reason, Ubuntu's Startup Disk Creator refuses to notice the iso, so I can't use that. Thus, I have to do it the hard way.

Before anyone mentions this, I'd like to mention that I already have looked into that and unfortunately it's not quite what I'm looking for. I need to mount the entire DVD iso image of slackware, not a small 37 mb image for USB.

Is this possible at all in Ubuntu? Many please and thank yous.

It refuses to recognise it because Ubuntu's Startup Disk Creator is only designed to put its own startup disks on USB. – Chris Down Sep 19 '11 at 13:09

You can use unetbootin to create bootable USB drives for many Linux distros
