Whats wrong with this line of fstab


Here is the line in question in bold with the rest around it. I want the user to be able to access it.
Code:
/dev/hda5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda9 /backups ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-15,sync,codepage=850 0 0
/dev/hda8 /music ext3 defaults 1 2
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 /windows vfat user,defaults,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hda10 /episodes ext3 user,defaults 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

ext3 has file base permissions thus the user keyword doesn't make any sense for an ext3 partition.

See the chown/chgrp program man pages. Those programs allow you to change the owner and group associated with a file. chmod allows you to change the actual permissions.
