Question i want to mount and then all users can write


but, i tried so many things. And I always can write in the mnt/windows for example (vfat) if i am root.

as a user i cannot write.
in the fstab

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat unmask=000,exec,rw,posix,utf8 0 0

what is wrong?


Also, how the F##K can i write in the GREEK LANGUAGE?
ok utf8 (is supposed to) read greek filenames (not all work, some letters missing!-really why?)
but how can i Write in Another language than US american english.
I wonder sometimes, if people know that there are other language than EARTHIAN (tell me English!)

no bad feelings though, if i fix the 2 problems..

Your problem is unmask is nothing. However, umask is

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat unmask=000,exec,rw,posix,utf8 0 0
vs
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat umask=000,exec,rw,posix,utf8 0 0



Cool
