As per "man 5 autofs":
If you use the automounter for a filesystem without access permissions
(like vfat), users usually can't write on such a filesystem because it is
mounted as user root. You can solve this problem by passing the option
gid=<gid>, e.g. gid=floppy. The filesystem is then mounted as group
floppy instead of root. Then you can add the users to this group, and
they can write to the filesystem. Here's an example entry for an autofs
floppy-vfat -fstype=vfat,sync,gid=floppy,umask=002 :/dev/fd0
