If you need to repeatedly mount a specific iso, you can use /etc/fstab:
/home/user/data.iso     /mnt/   iso9660  ro,loop,user,noauto   0        0

and then this line so you can umount it:
/dev/loop0          /mnt            iso9600 ro,loop,user,noauto     0        0

or you can actually use a generic name like "data.iso" and make that
a symlink any given iso file you might need to mount
