ISO files are the same a CD files ie not writeable, so the short answer is no. The long answer is yes but not easily! First you would have to extract all the files from the ISO, then you would have to add the drivers you want and then you would have to rewrite the iso file. I have never tried it myself but if you google along those lines you will probably find somebody that has.
