Add a line in /etc/fstab like:
/dev/hda1 /dos vfat rw,noexec,uid=1015,gid=102,umask=007, 0 0
The uid and gid are for a user dos and group dos which I created. The user dos
has a ! in /etc/passwd where the password entry would go so it can not log in.
I add any users which need access to that partition to group dos. Any files in
that partition are only readable and writeable by user dos and members of group dos. Hope this helps.
