Mounting a 2GB DVD ISO on 11.23

Running on 11.23 and trying to mount a 2GB DVD ISO via mount -F cdfs and getting the following error:

 

# mount -F cdfs /behan1/temp/101/ArcSDE_Linux_Unix_101pr_128263.iso /mnt/iso
mount: /behan1/temp/101/ArcSDE_Linux_Unix_101pr_128263.iso: Value too large to be stored in data type

 

Google tells me I may need to create a LV and dd the ISO file into it in order to mount.  Surely there must be a better way?  Tried pfs_mount to no avail.

 

Any suggestions?

Yes.  Yes, on 11.31 you can mount it directly.
