Linux mounting an NFS .ISO to a directory

#step 1:
# mount -t nfs 192.168.255.15:/mnt/vol1/store4/iso1 /mnt/iso1

Ok, this way you’ll have all your ISO files at /mnt/iso1. Now, imagine you want to mount one of these ISOs in loopback:

#step 2:
# mount -o loop /mnt/isos/[isofilename].iso /tmp/blah
/mnt/isos/blah.iso: Permission denied

Permission denied??? Hmmm.. I got stuck with this problem for a bit the first time. Tried changing permissions and exporting parameters, Google, but no answer at all… then… fortunately…. I found it: -o loop,ro!

#step 2 (for real this itme):
# mount -o loop,ro /mnt/iso1/[isofilename].iso /tmp/blah
