Hi Piero,

I have a line like this in /etc/fstab:

  /dev/hda1   /windows   vfat   noauto,user   0   0

which allows any user to issue 'mount /windows' 

look @ 'man fstab' though, there's a slight difference between 'user'
and 'users' where one means only the user who issued 'mount' can issue
'umount', but the other means any user can do either at any time

(I'm pretty sure I went with the former, above, but I'm the only regular
user on my system)
