That is what I was saying. root umount, then user mount it and see if
that changes the permissions. There is a process under Redhat that does
this (automounter?) and it jealously guards the permissions. I had the
same problem with floppies. There is an explantion in the archives, but
I can not think of keywords to give you for search, but I think the
answer came from Ken (fountain of knowledge) Yap.
