fstab question

I'm using a HD install of Knoppix. I've installed a new hard drive and in /etc/fstab i've put

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/hdb1 ext2 auto,exec,rw,users,sync 0 0
when i try to create a folder or save a file to the drive i get access denied.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

if your the only user who needs access just chmod 775 /mnt/whatever or create a group and add your self to that group with rw permissions.

How does the /mnt/hdb1 dir look like when the partition is unmounted, like this?

markus@mrk-fujibox:/$ ls -la /mnt/hdb6
total 8
drwxr-x--- 2 root users 4096 Apr 28 2004 .
drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 4096 Feb 21 23:39 ..
