If you're using http or ftp, you need to mount the ISO(s), then make
the mounted directory available to the service.  That makes sense,
since a client can't mount an ISO image over http or ftp.

So, something like "mount -t iso9660 -o loop DVD-image.iso
/var/www/html/fc6" (substitute your dvd image and http-accessible
directory here) would work.  If you have only CD images, then mount
them all, and symlink their files/folders to your http folder.  The
DVD method is simpler if you have that image on hand.
