Add the "user" option in /etc/fstab. Like so:

/dev/hda1               /mnt/dos                vfat
user,exec,umask=000    0 0

1. Mount: How can user mount vfat floppy with module?

Hi, everybody,

is there any chance for a user to mount a floppy disk with a fs other than
ext2 without root having to modprobe the module?
In my case, I need to mount disks with a vfat filesystem and I don't want to
have to su and modprobe all the time. I have a 2.2.16 kernel with only ext2
(rootfs) compiled into the kernel; all other fs are compiled as modules.

I'd be happy if anyone could shed some light on this. Thanks!
Alex
