I have managed to mount an external USB drive from instructions
I googled. I can read/write etc. when I am root, but when I try
as a normal user I get permission denied.
I added /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb auto noauto,owner 0 0
to the /etc/fstab file as per the googled instructions.
The drive is mounted at /mnt/usb
I have tried chmod a+w /mnt/usb
this does not give any error, but the access rights do not seem
