Mounting DVD ISO image

The lofiadm administers lofi, the loopback file driver.
lofi allows a file to be associated with a block device.
That file can then be accessed through the block device.
This is useful when the file contains an image of some filesystem (DVD image), because the block device can then be used with the normal system utilities for mounting, checking or repairing filesystems.
