Package: linux-image-2.6-k7
Version: 2.6.18+6

To write to a FAT32 harddisk partition, root-access is required.
This is only for partitions on the harddisk.
Hot-plug FAT32 drives (for example: an USB Drive), no root-access is

Here: the /etc/fstab:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda7       /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/hda8       /home           ext3    defaults        0       2
/dev/hda6       /share          vfat    defaults        0       0
/dev/hda9       none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0

The /share partition is the FAT32 partition.

The /etc/fstab was created by the installer and was not hand-modified.

The /share directory has the following attributes:
   - owner: root
   - group: root
   - access-rights: 755 (octal)
      - owner: 7 (read, write and execute)
      - group: 5 (read and execute)
      - others: 5 (read and execute; without write)
Changing the attributes of this directory with root-rights has no effect.

I am using Debian GNU/Linux 4.0, kernel 2.6.18-4-k7 and libc6 2.3.6.dsl-13
