In a terminal use the command

sudo mount -oloop filename.iso /mnt

where you replace filename.iso with the appropriate filename of the CD 
image. Then you find the contents of the image in the directory /mnt. And 
you can replace /mnt with any other empty directory of your system 
if /mnt is already in use.
