Mounting USB Ports
I have a question about mounting usb devices. I am using Red Hat 9 and when I try to connect my digital camera through the usb port I get an error saying "couldn't initialize device" - (Ptkam). When I log in as root the camera is again detected and works fine and I tranfer my pictures.
I think is the usb mounting permissions and that only root can mount usb devices.
Anyway my question is how can I mount my usb digital camera when I am logged in as user? What file do I have to edit and how to give mounting usb access to users?
Thanks in advance.

Dang...Your lucky you can see your camera at all. Mine won't even initialize. Good luck.

You will need to add a line in /etc/fstab
Use the following as a guide:

/dev/sda1              /mnt/camera          vfat    defaults,users        0 0
Take a look at the mount MAN page for more information on the available options.

If you want to mount your camera, take a look at this post.
