Ack!  You're right.  I was paying attention only to the .iso file name
suffix, and the OP's statement "I have an ISO fromat via dd from an old
scsi unix"

But in that case, 'file all_files.iso' is likely to tell you the format
of the disk partition.  After that, you can figure out how to access it
on your system.
