If you are running a livecd you are most likely root already, and will have mounted your partition with the permissions for root to edit it. You shouldn't require any extra authentication. Just add the line the devils_casper has given you above.
oh youre seeing 2 differnt things in same post the thing i was asking about was i i ever have to boot up the live cd again to fix my installs fstab and no wasnt root i tried and it said dont have permissions and the other was how to edit this sudo chown <user_id>:<user_id> /media/sdb5 to have my username in it its leo5111 and thanx for coming and helping...
Ubuntu LiveCD uses blank password. Boot up from LiveCD, mount / partition of Ubuntu and open /etc/fstab file with root privileges using sudo or gksu. In case it prompts for password, just hit Enter key.
the other was how to edit this sudo chown <user_id>:<user_id> /media/sdb5 to have my username in it its leo5111Code:
sudo chown leo5111:leo5111 /media/sdb5

Just type id in Terminal and it will list user_id and other details.
