When opening a DMG file, how do I get it to open up in front of the windows?

Whenever I open up a .dmg file, it just gets opened, but it stays under everything that I've got open.
Right now I would have to launch Mission Control to see the opened .dmg window and then click on it, to become visible at the top.

How can I set it up to behave in a way, that when I open up a .dmg file, it gets displayed on top of everything?

That's a Finder (on Lion) issue and as such, there are no settings to tweak for your problem. A faster way to reach the mount window is to simply click the Finder icon in your Dock.

Thanks for the answer. So you wanna tell me the devs didn't think that a .dmg that i WANT to open , should be in the front for me to see after I click it ?? And rather have me going to some other place first, even if I clicked the icon so I can install it ?? –  1amtoo1337 Dec 15 '11 at 14:51
Not really, I would consider it a Lion related bug. A dev overlook. –  yusf Dec 15 '11 at 15:00
Ok. I hope I can find a fix for it. –  1amtoo1337 Dec 15 '11 at 15:11
This isn't a Lion bug, this issue was in Snow Leopard too. –  pt2ph8 Dec 15 '11 at 15:57
Only in Lion for me. –  yusf Jan 3 '12 at 12:50
