    mtoolsfm -- only works as root


    I need to have easy access to DOS floppies on the linux computers in the computer room of a homeless shelter. mtoolsfm seems to work just fine for such a task, but it only works as root. When I start it as another user I get an "access denied" error. I've added rw to the fstab file. Is there something I'm missing?
