normal user can't execute files in cd..?

/etc/fstab for cd looks like this

/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 iocharset=iso8859-1,ro,nosuid,noauto,exec,user,nodev 0 0

file permissions on cd was rwxr-xr-x
and was root.root

i had to copy them to hard disk as a root
and install a program from hard..

the cd was burned by me using xcdroast

does the parameter in fstab have something to do with this?
thank you
