How to automount USB devices read-write in Ubuntu 9.10

I am trying to figure out how to set automount options so that USB devices are automounted read-write instead of read-only.

I have several USB flash drives that automount read-write when plugged into Macs or PCs, but the Ubuntu 9.10 automounter mounts them as read-only filesystems.

I can also write to the drives successfully on Macs and PCs so it's not a matter of the write-protect tab (I actually tried a couple of drives that don't have write protect tabs).

I looked at the gconf-editor and there are only 2 toggle swithes: one that controls automouting, the other controls whether the media browser is launched. I was hoping there would be some option there.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Which is very odd because udev is supposed to do that out of the box in 9.10 - it does for me. Make sure there is not an entry in /etc/fstab messing this up.
