    Set 2nd partition as read/write


    Linspire auto-mounts my 2nd harddrive partition (fat32) as read-only to normal users. How do I configure this partition to be read/write?

    Current /etc/fstab:
    Code:
    none    /proc   proc    defaults        0 0
    none    /sys    sysfs   defaults        0 0
    none    /proc/bus/usb   usbfs   defaults        0 0
    none    /dev/pts        devpts  rw      0 0
    tmpfs   /dev/shm        tmpfs   rw      0 0
    /boot/linux-swap.swp    none    swap    sw      0 0
    /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 /mnt/dos        vfat    comment=jiffymount,noatime,nodiratime,user,exec,dev,suid 0 0
    
    /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/cd     /mnt/cdrom1     supermount      comment=jiffymount,dev=/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/cd,fs=iso9660,--,ro,user,exec,unhide    0 0
    /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd     /mnt/cdrom0     supermount      comment=jiffymount,dev=/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd,fs=iso9660,--,ro,user,exec,unhide    0 0

    Changing the line in my fstab to:
    Code:
    /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2 /mnt/dos2       vfat    umask=0000,auto,noexec 0 0
    did the trick.
