Actually, that makes a bit of sense.  Depending on where in the fstab
(should be at the bottom, as the filesystem containing the iso has to be
online), it could work.

I guess the next option would be to add "noauto" with "defaults", and then
add "mount /mount/point" to /etc/rc.local, so you don't have to manually
run the mount command, later.
