    editing /etc/fstab

    Hi, When I add a new mount point to /etc/fstab, although I mount it rw, but it is only writable for the root user. How can I mount it, so that other users can write data to it ?

    The user must have rw rights to the folder you are mounting on, before it is mounted. Also, you need to add the user's user group to the line defining the mount point.

    For example
    Code:
    /dev/hda2	/mnt/hda2	ext2	rw,noauto		0	0
    This would allow only root to modify the mounted folder.

    Code:
    /dev/hda2	/mnt/hda2	ext2	rw,trickster,noauto		0	0
    By doing this change, I'm allowing anyone in the trickster group to modify the folder.
    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.
