The only download files on the eDelivery cloud I can find are Oracle VM Manager with Oracle Linux 2.1.5.0.0 and Oracle VM Manager with Oracle Linux 2.2.0.0.0.  When I download and extract them I do not get any iso files, just .img files. 

How are those installed?

Thanks

    Solved.

    Found the mount instructions elsewhere:

    [[email protected] OVM_EL5U4_X86_OVM_MANAGER_PVM]# fdisk -lu System.img

    Disk System.img: 9023 MB, 9023132160 bytes, 17623305 sectors

    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

    Disk label type: dos

    Disk identifier: 0x0002a119

         Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System

    System.img1   *          63      192779       96358+  83  Linux

    System.img2          192780    13414274     6610747+  83  Linux

    System.img3        13414275    17623304     2104515   82  Linux swap / Solaris

    mount -t auto -o loop,offset=$((63*512)) System.img /mnt/System

    mounted the image file as /mnt/System.
