First create a device using lof admin utility, lofiadm:
	# lofiadm -a /path/to/iso/file/image
lofiadm will return the device name
Mount the iso image/device name just returned to your favorite mount point.
	# mount -F hsfs -o ro /dev/lofi/1  /mnt
Afterward, unmount the device and delete the iso device
	# umount /mnt
	# lofiadm -d /dev/lofi/1

% man lofiadm
