Uhh, yes, this is possible.

How about this:

#! /bin/bash

# use /mnt/mountiso as default:
d="${2-/mnt/mountiso}"

mount -o loop $1 $d

# umount when the script exits:
trap "umount -d $d" EXIT

konqueror $d

With konqueror running in the foreground, the scripts waits until you close
konqueror and then umounts. ;)

Cheers,

Leen
