Fstab fat32 --> writable by all users

Hi easy question for those who can:

What should I write in fstab to change my fat32 partition to be writable for users?

/dev/hdX /mnt/vfat vfat auto,users,rw,umask=000 0 0
Thats how my fstab entry looks like. Although you would also have to change permissions on the directory in which vfat is mounted...
