Mounting external hard drive, permission problems


Hey!

I'd like to mount my external hdd into one of my home directories by editing the fstab file, but after the mount, only root get r/w access to it.

My fstab line:
Code:
UID=xyz /home/xy/external  ext3    defaults 0 0
How should i modify this to work?

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: nvm, solved, i was stupid
