mount -t command for users
is there any way i can change the mount command's permitions so as to allow users to use the -t flag
mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
so other than changing permissions (not sure if thats possible), is it possible to create a sudo group?
how would i go about creating a sudo group for this command?

Maybe the best way to do it is to make an entry in /etc/fstab that includes the "user" or "users" option.
For example, here's a section of my fstab that lets any user mount/unmount my USB flash key and its integrated flash card reader:
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # Flash drive/card reader (assumes they're sda and sdb) /dev/sda1 /media/flash auto rw,sync,users 0 0 /dev/sdb1 /media/8in1 auto rw,sync,users 0 0Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!

hm, i have edited fstab but it doesnt suit my needs.
i'm making mount and unmount scripts for my parallel port zip100 drive, and there are a few minor anoyances that fstab doesnt fix for me:
1 - if the zip disk is not inserted at boot, then only the drive is listed in /dev (/dev/sda)
2 - i need to use /sbin/partprobe to update the /dev dir so that it can "see" the disk in the drive after i put it in (then becomes /dev/sda4)
3 - if there are any other external devices that use scsi emulation (all pendrives and external hard-drives) mounted before the zip-drive gets mounted, then the zip drive becomes /dev/sdx4
so by making my own mount script in which partprobe is run and the script attemps to mount multiple /dev/sdx drives until it gets the right one, my problem gets solved.
thats why i'm not using fstab...All Empires rise and fall. The Microsoft Empire has already risen, only one way to go now...
