Can't mount HD in read/write!!


proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hdb6 /home ext3 defaults 0 2
/dev/hdb5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/extrahd1 ext3 rw,user 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0


There is my fstab contents. I am trying to mount /dev/hda2 to /mnt/extrahd1. My problem comes in when I am logged in as a normal user, and I am unable to write to the drive.

I have tried mounting it with the rw flags and it still isn't working.

Did you make sure the directory /mnt/extrahd1 has user read write?

I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't work... with the severe lack of support for Linux by Corporate America. I'm impressed how the Linux organization actually gets things to work with no support. Linux is just that powerful of an OS to have these possibilities.
