Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Is your kernel atleast a 2.6.32 kernel.
I only ask ,because I have Debian 506 & Ubuntu 10.10
For Debian the only the 2.6.32 kernel was able to read into my Ubuntu files.
Ubuntu 10.10 is ext4
Debian is ext2
My only option was to change Debian kernel to 2.6.32.
Allow an ordinary user to mount the file system. The name of the mounting user is written to mtab so that he can unmount the file system again. This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line user,exec,dev,suid).
So there's your problem. I have no idea why you need the "user" option at all - that's normally employed for removable drives. But if you must use it, put exec after user.
(It should be noted than in general, when trying to figure out options and stuff for /etc/fstab, the mount manpage is a lot more informative than the fstab manpage.)
I don't know what debian/*buntu do with their kernels, however if you really really want to go the ext4 route you should be using the latest stable kernel. ext4 is a newly born animal, and there's quite a lot of difference and a lot less bugs on newer kernels. Pick 2.6.36 from kernel.org and use that instead. If you still have problems then it will be time to look deeper.
