Mounting floppies / USB disks from root has worked fine from root.
But does anyone know how to mount these when not in root?
When I try, Fedora Core 4 tells me that I don't have the permissions: it's a bit of a pain if you have to log in as root to mount anything.
Using the 'mount' command won't work unless you're 'su' in terminal mode as a normal user, too.
Even when I have the things mounted, Fedora tells me that I don't have the permission to write to the floppy / USB etc. when not as root. So I logged into root to change this & alter the permissions,
...but this is the STRANGE bit:
when I right clicked on the floppies etc. to alter the permissions, and put a tick in the box for users in the same group to be able to write, and also in the box for Others to write, the tick disappeared just after I put it in!
I tried it again, but every time I try to tick the box to change the permissions, it disappears again!
How can I fix this? Or is my PC playing mind games with me?
