mounting truecrypt container as non-admin user

Hi Guys,

I have a truecrypt container say
. The container is living on the server owned and readable by the root user and 'setfacl'ed for user 'foo' to read and modify the file; the rest are denied even to read the container.

Now I am trying to mount it from a Fedora14 desktop in which I logged on as 'foo'. Now I could not mount the container as 'foo' can not mount anything; at the same time if I add 'foo' sudoers, the client 'root' can not read the container.

Can anybody suggest a work around/solution for this?

Please let me know if I am not clear in describing the problem.

You should be able to add the FS to the /etc/fstab and use the user option as described on this site:
