Well, after googling all over the place, I found that if you include this in the /etc/fstab/ file:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/jumpdrive auto noauto,user,rw 0 0
linux will allow me to mount and umount the jumpdrive from within X without becoming root. Now, what I want to know is...how is this different from:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/jumpdrive auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
and who is this guy kudzu anyway?
ans why does he have control? Now really, I understand the fstab command I typed, but I dont undersatnd the kudzu one, what is it saying. Thanks
