hald - usb storage permission
hi all,
I'm a happy user of fedora 3.

I'm a little bit confused about usb external storage mounting and acces permission.

I have an usb key that fedora autoamtically mounts with my user as owner and permission for all. ok!
I have also a 120Gb usb hard-drive with two partitions, one of ext3 type and the other ntfs.
Fedora/hald mounts the ext3 with owner root and permission for all. The problem is that the ntfs partition is mounted as root but without reading permission for the user.

Can somebody help me to find out how to have read permission for the ntfs partition for the users?

here's my fstab:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=SWAP-hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 /home/gio/windows ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/sda2 /media/external_lnx ext3 pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/external_ntfs ntfs pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/GIO_KEY vfat pamconsole,noatime,sync,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

Try this instead

/dev/sda1 /media/external_ntfs ntfs umask=0 0 0

yes I know,
the problem is that the fstab is automatically modified by hald, is not written by me.
