Unhappy mount a .iso or extract a .iso behind user witout access to root

I want to extract the files in a small 10 mb iso file so i tried the following (not root):

mount -o loop -t iso9660 isofile mount_place

that given me the following answer:
mount: only root can do that.

So I have done a search for linux iso extrator, browser or for a virtual cd on linux and found nothing.

Any help would be appreciated.

P.S i can't have root privilege.

You have to log in as a root to 'mount' anything.
