I have a second drive in my computer running under the latest Ubuntu (8.10). I've figured out how to add that drive to the fstab file so that everytime I reboot, that drive is automatically mounted.
The problem I am having is making the contents of that drive fully available to whatever user logs in. Regardless of the user, I want that user to have full access (read/write/exec/etc) to that second drive/volume. What parameters do I specify for it? Currently I am using:
/dev/sda1 /media/USB-HDD vfat rw,auto,user,exec 0 0
With these parameters, when I check the permissions of a folder contained on that drive (through Nautilus) it says that it is owned by root and that the current user has no permissions. I tried this:
/dev/sda1 /media/USB-HDD vfat rw,auto,users,exec 0 0
I thought I read that specifying "users" in the options, puts the drive into the users group which should mean I have read/write access, right? This didn't work.
Any ideas on how to make this drive/volume fully available to any user that is logged in?
