/dev/hda7 /mnt/dati ext2 noauto,user 0 0
changing 'user' to 'users' will allow you to acces the partition when not logged in as root.
add 'rw' to the end of those options to make it look like this:
that will allow you to access the partition as read+write
its possible you could leave the fs type as auto rather than ext2 and let it auto-detect the fs type... but i could be wrong about that. seems like i remember reading something about that possibly messing up file systems it was a monday or the date was divisible by two, or some other esoteric reason.
best to make the other changes i posted above, reboot, and try it again.
might be helpful if you posted your entire /etc/fstab file too.
edit: and just to be sure, you have created the directory you're trying to mount the partition on, right? /mnt/dati (or whatever) is actually there, within the /mnt directory? the mount command doesn't create that for you...
