How to edit a Fedora Live image file


I am looking for instructions on how to edit an ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem image file.

I have created in fedora 12 image. Now I want to modify some files in the /etc directory. Because of some other issues related to creating a new image, I decided to investigate how to change the image I have been using.

I have tried the manual approach using the following command

mount -o loop F12-R02-ipdt1.20.1.0-live.iso /editiso/

Then I executed the ll command looking for the /etc directory. Here is the output of the command

dr-xr-xr-x. 3 root root 2048 2010-03-18 13:42 EFI
-r-xr-xr-x. 1 root root 679 2010-03-18 13:42 etc
-r--r--r--. 1 root root 18363 2010-03-18 13:42 GPL
dr-xr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 2010-03-18 13:42 ipdt - (this folder contains my customized utility)
dr-xr-xr-x. 2 root root 2048 2010-03-18 13:42 isolinux
-r-xr-xr-x. 1 root root 1351056 2010-03-18 13:42 lib
dr-xr-xr-x. 2 root root 2048 2010-03-18 13:43 LiveOS

So my question is which of these contains the /etc directory? I see there is a etc file but I was expecting to see the /etc directory. :unsure:

This is an urgent need so any assistance is greatly appreciated,
