    It's pretty much "filled out" already. We don't know the path to the ISO file so there's not much we can do without you providing more information. All you're missing is the path to that file.

    /to/the/file.iso is a path, replace it with ~/Desktop/image.iso (or whatever the path is)

    if you need help with terminal you really shouldn't be using it...

    You can also drag the file into the Terminal window and it will put in the filepath automatically.
