I presume you mean disk image files, usually of floppy disks.
Running file will tell you what the file is; if it's a disk image, it'll
tell you what filesystem the disk uses. Floppy disk images are mounted
with the '-o loop' option. They are usually DOS formatted, so you would use
mount -o loop -t vfat path/to/disk.img /mountpoint
This will allow you to access the files on the disk image as usual.
