How do I install linux on another partition, using the ISO ?

I have a computer that has mandrake linux installed, and I have downloaded an ISO of SUSE to my HDD. I have no way of burning it and would like to install it on another partition. Is there any way  I can mount the iso and do an install from that as if it was a cd ?

Thank you in advance for your help

Log in as root and mount like this # mount -t iso9660 linux.iso /mnt/iso/ -o loop  cd  to /mnt/iso then dd boot floppy image(which is on the first iso) to floppy. Then boot from floppy and tell the installer where to find the image (partition number). Make sure you have free space on primary hard disk to intall new system.

Good luck! :)
