I have few
.mdf images, that can be mounted with
Alcohol 120%, but on Linux, is that possible?
I've tried things similar to
mount -o loop -t iso9660 XX.mdf /mnt/iso, but that doesn't work here, I got
ISOFS: Unable to identify CD-ROM format.

Try first to convert it into an iso file, with
mdf2iso (you have to install it) like this :
Linux cannot mount mdf file (which is a closed format) natively. Or, you can try to rename it into "your_file.iso" and mount it with the command you gave, but it's not working with every mdf image.
Or if you're using an X Server, you can try the software
acetoneiso which is basically some sort of Daemon Tools / Alcohol 120% for Linux.
There is also FuseISO, a user space file system driver. I wish I had known about this option a few years ago because I too had been just converting them with
mdf2iso. Since I tend to like to keep source files, this made for clutter.
