Hello, how should I set up the umask,dmask and fmask in fstab for the fat drives in Kernel that needs that? I want that every user is able to read and write to this disks. Until I was running the 2.4.21 everything worked ok just with the umask, but now I have to set also the other atributes(I am using 2.6 testing kernel).

dmask and fmask, not sure, probably a halloween store

However for the umask bit, probably a:
/dev/hdx /mnt/fat32 vfat users,auto,umask=002 0 0

Might work. /dev/hdx is of course the actual partition/device that needs to be mounted.
