How to install Ubuntu on a Mac OS X

Hey,

        I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a partition on my Mac OS X; but I'm getting this error:

Unable to attach "ubuntu-12.10-desktop-1386.iso" (no mountable file systems)

Does anyone know how to get around this? I made the partition, opened the iso file using Disk Utility; and I keep getting this error.

Yes, I know its not really productive installing Ubuntu on a Mac OS X; but its running way too slowly on Parallels, and I need Ubuntu to do a project.

Appreciate any help on this.

use a virtual machine either virtualbox or vmware

but it sounds like its a bad iso copy.

how have you made the mountable iso? burnt it to usb? cd?

hat did you use?

As I said in the question, the VM was too slow... the iso worked for the VM but not when I wanted to install it to the boot camp part.
