mounting oracle.iso files to user oracle with permissions

Hi all,
I try to mount an oracle iso image to install directly from it. I create an entry in /etc/fstab

/home/oracle/V32480-01.iso /mnt/iso/ iso9660 ro,loop,user,noauto,unhide,uid=oracle,gid=oinstall

Now I can mount the iso as user oracle with chown oracle:oinstall.

#>mount /mnt/iso

But I can not start the installer from the mount location.

-bash: /mnt/iso/ Permission denied

#>l /mnt/iso/
-r-xr-x---. 1 oracle oinstall 453 Apr 30 2012

I know I could copy the files but I do prefer :-/

Does anyone can help ?
