    You have to replace ntfs with ntfs-3g to enable read/write access. Regular Users will have read/write access in NTFS Partition.

    Regular Users can not execute mount command. /etc/fstab mount partitions during boot up and it set user access permission for partitions. It has nothing to do with mount command execution rights. Set sudoers file for User's command execution permissions.

    This code enables read/write permission for /dev/sdb1 NTFS Partition to all users.
    Code:
    /dev/sdb1   /mnt/externeRO    ntfs-3g  defaults,umask=0 0 0
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    i remember that there have been some systems that require a user be added to the video group to mount drives.

    as root look in /etc/group and it will have a list of groups folowed by "users" added to that group. make shure your user name is in the "video" and "users" groups, and also probobly things like audio and cdrom for other uses.
