allowing read write to ext3 partition to non-root users


hi,

I need to allow non-root users to read/write on an ext3 partition.

Below is the relevant output from fdisk -l
Code:
 Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1        5099    40957686    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2            5100        8746    29294527+  83  Linux
/dev/sda3            8747        8989     1951897+   5  Extended
/dev/sda4            8990       19457    84084210   83  Linux
/dev/sda5            8747        8989     1951866   82  Linux swap
The partition in question is /dev/sda4 and it is mounted as /Data (setup during installation). Distribution: Debian Lenny

How can this be done?

Thanks

After mounting, did you chmod it?

Eg.
Code:
chmod a+w /Data
