Question trying to get automount working

i've been trying to get automount woking on a vfat partition with R/W access for any user. However all i've accomplished is R/W for root and read-only for other users.
These are the contents of my /etc/fstab:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc9 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/hdc8 /mnt/jza vfat rw,users,umask=0002,gid=users 0 0

can anybody see what is wrong?

You could always try:

/dev/hdc8 /mnt/jza vfat umask=000,defaults 0 0
