I've recently changed from windows to linux, and I'm using the slackware distr. 9.1.

On my hdb1 there is a lot of data still under FAT-file system. fstab mounts it automatic, but only the root can access it.

So I tried to rewrite the line in fstab, and well ... that didn't work

If somebody can help me?

// this is the line from fstab mounting the hdb1

/dev/hdb1 /media vfat noauto, owner,rw 1 0

Thanx alot

One of these should work.

/dev/hdb1 /media vfat noauto,user,rw 1 0


/dev/hdb1 /media vfat umask=000,user 1 0
