Mount ext3 hard drive with umask=0


I have a hard drive that is formatted with ext3 filesystem .. It has nothing on it right now as I would like to just use it as storage. It is one big partition.

I would like to have regular users be able to read and write to it but I cannot figure out how to set it to umask=0 (like you can with ntfs or fat partitions in fstab). ext3 does not have that option (yes, I checked the man pages).

What is the option to include in fstab to make ext3 drives read/write to anyone that mounts it?

yeah, you don't need to add "umask=0"

i mounted my ext3 partitions with no umask (it is not possible to give it anyway) and chmod worked out. However if i create a new directory now it will have drwxr-xr-x which means i cant write in to it
How can i mount ext3 so that any newly created directory will have permissions like :drwxrwxrwx ?

don't think "chmod" mount point is a good idea, try with -
mount -o user,rw /dev/partition /mnt/somewhere

It's true.

Code:
sudo chmod -R a+xrw [directory] or [file]

I am in this thread for the same trpn's reason.
Though very late, I add the solution for others who visit this thread.
