When a partition is mounted on root, other users have to remount, the partitions. Is there a way if one user mounts a partition, and another user has similar access if remounted then the user does not have to remount? All users share the same computer. Actually there are only 2 (root and the other one)

Thanks in advance!

make a group called mnt and make all mount points a member of this group.

The command to change the permissions is

chown mnt /mnt/windows

where /mnt/windows is the mount point

The command to mount is

mount -t auto /dev/hda? /mnt/windows

where hda is the device to mount and /mnt/windows is the mount point

You will then have to make your users members of the mnt group
