Welcome to LQ.

What errors did you get? I have sometimes had the problem of mounting ISOs as normal users under any distro, but doing so works a treat as root.

Just to make sure, you are doing so like this?

mount isofile -o loop mountpoint

I wrote:

mount -o loop -t iso9660 isofile mount_place

and here is the answer.

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
or too many mounted file systems

Check if the kernel has support for loopback devices.

Type make menuconfig (or xconfig) and see in "loopback device support" under "block devices".

Also don't harm to check if support for Iso 9660 filesystem is compiled in the kernel.
