At present you don't, due to the lack of a read/write iso9660
filesystem implementation.  (Given such an implementation, you'd either
dd the thing onto a disk partition and mount it, or use the vn (or are
they vnd now?) devices.)  My point was that there is nothing
conceptually difficult about the notion of a writable iso9660

The implementation may be difficult, perhaps even difficult enough that
it's not worth doing.  But there's nothing but that preventing it from
being done.
