How to give a drive write access to all users in FSTAB? (ext3)


Here's an excerpt from my current FSTAB

`-`-`-`-`-`-`-`-` SNIP<
#Secondary drives
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/hdb1 ext3 defaults,noatime 1 1
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1 ext3 defaults,noatime 1 1
`-`-`-`-`-`-`-`-` SNIP>

I'm able to touch /mnt/hdb1/blah from root, but not as a user.

What flag would I add to this fstab entry to get write access ability to all users on the system?

Thanks!

same as you would for any other file...
via chmod or chown
like "chmod 0777 /mnt/hdb1" will give everyone access.
