Eject Zip Disk

What permissions do I need to set to be able to eject a zip disk using the program "eject"?

Its a user binary, so as long as the device was mounted as nouser, it should be able to eject by users other than root. What's your /etc/fstab line look like for the device?

Ok, I'm still having trouble.

fstab looks like this:

/dev/sda4 /mnt/zip auto nouser,noauto 0 0

But when I have it as nouser instead of user a normal user can't mount the drive...
