Mounting HELIOS CD on Linux

The mount command given in the CD booklet of the HELIOS CD-ROM may not work correctly on all Linux systems. Some customers reported that for executable files (e.g. the HELIOS installer) the execute bit is missing. This is the case for e.g. SuSE Linux 9/10.
To mount the CD-ROM correctly on these systems, the file system type 'iso9660' must be specified when using the mount command. 
The following example works on SuSE Linux 9/10: 
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
