Are these completely necessary? I know I can stuff more stuff up in root, but I can't access any drives or anything using an account.
I am running Slackware 9.0 and KDE.
I have checked my /etc/fstab and here is the output:
/dev/hdb2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /fat1 vfat user,rw,exec 1 0
/dev/hdb3 /fat2 vfat user,rw,exec 1 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 ro,users,noauto 0,0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto user,noauto 0 0
devpts dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
I can't access anything on the drives fat1 and fat2 when logged in as a user.
I also have a Sony DVD drive which shows up in the bootup text but not here..... ie it wont mount?
Also, do Cd/DVD drives mount automatically when you put a disc in them or do you then need to mount them as well?
Another thing, when in windows, I can't access the fat2 drive at all (which also has the linux partition on it) but can see fat1 and fat2 from within linux!
