yes, rather clearly:
The error ``Operation not permitted'' may indicate that the
mount options include privileged options and/or don't include
options that exclude privileged options. One should try using
at least ``nodev'' and ``nosuid'' in such cases:
mount -t cd9660 -o nodev,nosuid /dev/cd0a /mnt
of course, in this case, the user assumed he "got the permissions
right", so the above wouldn't matter.
