He means it doesn't he?
Only thing I've come across is the Virtual CDROM program that allows you
to image CDs to a file and then mount them on drive letters. The images
are not ISO9660s though so you cannot remount these under linux.
The other thing you might like to think about is the Windows disk compressino
stuff. That creates a (compressed) filesystem image on a host drive which
is then mounted under another drive letter. You could maybe fiddle with
that sort of thing. I don't know if you could mount such a filesystem
under linux though and if you couldn't, there'd be no point eh?
