Now that I understand why it doesn't work (comcast fun) I would like to
use my local copy anyway.
On the apache box:
/home/carl/html/ubuntu/iso type iso9660 (rw,loop=/dev/loop0)
[root at dev html-default]# ln -s /home/carl/html/ubuntu/iso/ ubuntu
So I enter my local apache box: http://192.168.1.1/
and bam! away we go!
If someone will review what I have posted here and give it the thumbs
