Thus spake Ivan Wills: > Hi > I am trying to use a windows win32 (vfat) partition as an ordinary user > but the permissions do not allow me to read it or write to it unless I > am root. > > I have tried to chmod the mount location (with the partition mounted and > unmounted) with no success. I also tried adding user to the options > column in the fstab file but also with no success. /dev/hda1 /mnt/cdrive vfat defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 2 or, mount -t vfat -o uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/hda1 /mnt/cdrive -- Nathan Poznick <firstname.lastname@example.org> Nobody can be exactly like me. Even I have trouble doing it.
