First, You must setup a loop device, creating a device-level access to
Your files. Something like losetup /dev/loop0 <iso.file>
Maybe You'll have to modprobe the loop module first.
Then, You can mount this device to some mount point.
mount -tiso9660 /dev/loop0 <mountpoint>
Then You have to tell wine about the pseudo-CDROM by means of its config
