you can supply to jigdo an arbitrary number of directory locations
where it can go looking for packages.  the directory location for a
mounted DVD is just the most common one, but you're not limited to

if you have an ISO image, i imagine you simply need to mount it first
-- i don't think you can refer to just the ISO image itself.
