hello...i'm havin a bit of a problm mounting the iso image

whenever i giv the cmd :
sudo mount -rw hfsplus -o loop /mnt/media/『←→ҳ̸Ҳ̸ҳ←→』♪♫ .•´/snowleopard.iso /mnt/media/Macintosh/iso

i get an error message :
Usage: mount -V : print version
mount -h : print this help
mount : list mounted filesystems
mount -l : idem, including volume labels
So far the informational part. Next the mounting.
The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'.
Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted.
mount -a [-t|-O] ... : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab
mount device : mount device at the known place
mount directory : mount known device here
mount -t type dev dir : ordinary mount command
Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts
a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device.
One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere:
mount --bind olddir newdir
or move a subtree:
mount --move olddir newdir
One can change the type of mount containing the directory dir:
mount --make-shared dir
mount --make-slave dir
mount --make-private dir
mount --make-unbindable dir
One can change the type of all the mounts in a mount subtree
containing the directory dir:
mount --make-rshared dir
mount --make-rslave dir
mount --make-rprivate dir
mount --make-runbindable dir
A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom,
or by label, using -L label or by uuid, using -U uuid .
Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options] [-p passwdfd].
For many more details, say man 8 mount .

do u thnk sumthin's wrong wit the cmd or m i missing sumthin else....'ve been tryin for days now

my confg :
processor : intel core i7 @ 2.67 ghz
ram : 2 gb transcend ddr3
motherboard : asus p6t deluxe ve
graphics card : xfx nvidia gtx 260

that's it ...thnx in advance

『←→ҳ̸Ҳ̸ҳ←→』♪♫ .•´ is the ntfs drive where the iso image "snowleopard.iso" is located
Macintosh is the hfsplus partition and iso is the directory or mounting point...

This method does not work for retail SL.
Editing the "Distribution" from the OSInstall.mpkg does not allow MBR installation as was possible with the all 10.5x aka leopard retail install DVD.

How do I know what Kext files I need for my system. I did find the folder that holds them, but How do I know what is already on the retail DVD? There are soo many kexts in that folder, do I add them all?
