Accessing 2nd Harddrive


Just today I installed gentoo linux, with kde.

I edited my fstab and my 2nd harddrive does mount but I can only access this as root?

Could someone please help?

change the line:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/dave vfat defaults 1 1

to

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/dave vfat umask=0222 1 1

and you'll be able to read it as a user, but you'll need to be root to write to it, which is how i have mine set up...kinda safer that way...


you'll need to reboot for this to take effect...

*edit

after googling it, i found that umask=0 works for read/write as a user...at least for me in slackware...
