okay now that I understand. It is an .img file and not an iso even though its bootable. 

So I can point it back to my running system which is the sd card I booted from. 

That does not seem to work. 

Task to do [mountdist]: 

Please wait... Scanning storage devices...

The following storage media were detected.
Choose the one containing the distribution.

	/dev/sdM0/dos (microsoft fat)
	/dev/sdU7b1211/dos (microsoft fat)

Distribution disk (/dev/sdM0/dos, /dev/sdU7b1211/dos, /dev/sdU7b121/fs, /)[no default]: /dev/sdM0/fs
Distribution disk (/dev/sdM0/dos, /dev/sdU7b1211/dos, /dev/sdU7b121/fs, /)[no default]: /dev/sdM0/dos
% mount /srv/dos /n/distmedia /dev/sdM0/dos

Which directory contains the distribution?
Any of the following will suffice (in order of preference):
	- the root directory of the cd image
	- the directory containing 9front.iso
	- the directory containing 9front.iso.bz2

Location of archives [/]: 
No distribution found in /
Location of archives [/]: 
No distribution found in /
Location of archives [/]: 

So that doesn't work and neither does /dev/sdU7b121/fs which is technically my destination
