Hi everybody,
I've recently buy an Hamlet usb HD and I create an ext3 partition on it.

The question is: how can I write on it as normal user? Now I can ONLY mount and unmount the device as normal user.
Only root can write on it.

Here is my fstab:
Code:
/dev/hda3               /boot           ext2            noauto,noatime  1 2
/dev/hda6               /               reiserfs        noatime         0 1
/dev/hda5               none            swap            sw              0 0
/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom      iso9660         noauto,ro,users 0 0
/dev/sda5               /mnt/hamlet     ext3            noauto,users,rw 0 0

you need to either add in the option "user" or "users".
i see you already have that, and this should work, so, what's the error message that mount spits out?
