mounted vfat permissions


i am using slackware 9.1, i have mounted my fat partitions so that i can access them using linux, the problem is that no users other than the troot can access fat partitions, i have tried mmounting with the options user, exec, but the mounted partitions always have
rwxr--r-- or 744 set fro permissions. How can i make these partitions accessible to the normal users other than root, so that they can atleast read and browse directories in those partitions.

what are the permissions on the directory where you're mounting BEFORE you mount? Are they 744?

Try adding these options in the 4th field of the relevant /etc/fstab entry

defaults,umask=000

then save and reboot, then check..
