In that case, the easiest way is to have (access to) a Mac running OS X 10.5 - it'll mount chdman -extract images (name them .dmg and double-click in Finder) and let you drag and drop files into and out of them. 10.6 won't work - they made it read-only there which is a lot less useful. And since 10.5 will also mount .iso images by double-clicking it's quite convenient - I got 7.6 and 7.6.1 off .isos and into MESS exactly that way.
