Hard Drive Permissions

I have a drive /dev/sda1 and I want it mounted to /mnt/external. I want this drive to have full permissions for all users. How would I do this in fstab? Thanks

/dev/sda1   /mnt/external       ext2        default,owner,users,rw        1    2
an example above ......just change ext2 to whatever FS you use.......ext3, reiserfs, etc.
