How to mount *.bin disk image on Linux/Mac (without *.cue file)

First, you need binchunker - a utitily to convert the bin/cue pair into an iso image. It is available on macports and should be easy to get on most linux distros.

Now, you need to prepare your *.cue file. Suppose the you have a "blah.bin" file. Enter following text into "blah.cue":

FILE “blah.bin” BINARY
TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
INDEX 01 00:00:00
Now, enter the following spell:
bchunk blah.bin blah.cue blah.iso
There, you have it.

Thanks to these guys for help.
