Firstly, you need to make sure the user you want has write access to the mountpoint (/media/hd8). Also I don't know if it's part of the problem but ditch the space in the options, I don't have any spaces in my fstab and it all works so I'd take that as a sign.

Uhhhh, then give yourself access..? If you have access to modify fstab then I presume you have access to change the permissions on /media/hda8.

Sorry I have Ubuntu 5.10 (and the nautilus script that allows me to edit the file as root. How and what do I put in this file to gain access to the hda8 partition? I am not familiar with the commands. help will be appreciated.
