    fstab I think


    I have a lovely big 1GB memory sticks which I want to use as easily under linux as I do under the other OS. I have no real desire to log in as root every time I want to use it and mount it with the full rigmarole. I have been led to believe that I can change or add entires into 'fstab' to allow me to mount it as a user. Please advise how to do this so I can just execute a simple command to get it going.

    Thanks in advance

    He suggests that you have the following in your fstab:

    Code:
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbflash vfat noauto,users,rw,umask=0 0 0
