The line you specify right there should tell you what you want to know:
you have specified, amongst the other mount options, that you do not
want executable code, suid code and device files to be usable on the CD.
So, to get executable stuff running off it, remove 'noexec' from the
mount options in fstab and remount the CD.
 Well, whoever wrote the fstab, anyway.
