Step one is to have Linux installed. Somewhere.
You can use some Virtual machine, such as Oracle Virtual Box and download some image with a Linux distro installed.

Here is page for VirtualBox download
You can use either community version that is free (as in free speech, or freedom) https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
or you can use version from Oracle, that is free (meaning that you do not have to pay for it) http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/se...ads/index.html

There are lots of images with pre-installed Linux distributions available, such as those
http://virtualboximages.com/Free.Vir....VDI.Downloads
You can use, for example this one
LinuxMint 11 i386 LXDE Virtual Appliance

Then you have to boot into that Linux, copy the *.img file somewhere you can see it and mount it using the above command. When you have Linux installed I will look up and test exact working command for you.


Mounting is connecting another partition / device with a filesystem on it to a directory. In this case the filesystem isn't on a device, such as /dev/sdb1 but in a file itself. This is called loopback.
