    using groups


    Alrighty, how do I go about giving anyone the right to mount a cdrom or a floppy without pissing off Linus. I preferably would like to use user groups to do this. At a the least a good tutorial on how to perform this function.


    best regards,

    you need to change /etc/fstab
    here is mine, for example
    Code:
    /dev/hdc        /media/cdrom   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0
    /dev/fd0        /media/floppy    auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0

    edit /etc/fstab

    I read that somewhere. I added the user part to fstab, but it still does'nt work. My cd can be read by anyone after its mounted. but I cant mount as user.
