I'm using Debian Sarge. I have a proprietary boot loader/disk imager/partitioner (called BootItNG) that I'm planning to phase out because Linux has all those tools for free anyway. Before I do, though, I need to be able to write to and delete from my USB external hard drive. I can mount and see all the files the on the drive, but can't write to the disk as a regular user, or under su.
In my fstab:
/dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1 vfat rw,users,noauto 0 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 mark mark 16384 Dec 31 1969 sda1
brwxrwxr-x 1 root disk 8, 1 Jul 22 2004 sda1
As far as I know (which isn't much
), I have all permissions set for full access for anyone. What do I need to learn to fix this?
