First of all you do not burn iso files directly on the cd, you need to extract the image to the cd, but I guess that's what it sounds like you have there.

I will call your cdroms /dev/cdrom0, /dev/cdrom1, /dev/cdrom2
since I don't know what the device names are, you may want to link them to those names anyway if their not already

make a place to mount them

mkdir /mnt/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom2

mount the cdroms

mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom0 /mnt/cdrom0
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1
mount -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom2 /mnt/cdrom2

make a place to mount the iso files

mkdir /mnt/iso0 /mnt/iso1 /mnt/iso2

mount the iso files ( use the correct names )

mount -o loop /mnt/cdrom0/*.iso /mnt/iso0
mount -o loop /mnt/cdrom1/*.iso /mnt/iso1
mount -o loop /mnt/cdrom2/*.iso /mnt/iso2

There is no need to use fstab unless you are making a mount point permanent
