  1. First, su to root, then kick off some PFS(Portable File System) daemons into the shell background:
  2. `nohup pfs_mountd&`
  3. `nohup pfsd &`
  4. Finally, mount the image with:
  5. `pfs_mount -x unix /full/path/to/iso.iso /full/path/to/mount/point
  6. The "-x unix" makes the mount so that filenames don't contain extra ISO9660 information and makes all filenames lowercase.
  7. For more information, `man pfs_mount`
