You can mount a .iso image with the command

sudo mount -o loop,ro /path/to/image/file.iso /path/to/mount/point

If your mount point is a subfolder of /media, it will show up on your desktop and get opened by Nautilus as soon as you mount it.

As for installing Quickbooks: best of luck with that. I have enough trouble trying to make the bloody thing work in Windows, let alone an environment that Intuit has likely never tested it in. It looks like you might be able to do it with a recent version of Wine:
