Mounting USB memory stick problem

The /etc/fstab defines the mounts, whether they auto mount
or not (auto, noauto), and who can access who can access
(owner, users). Here is an example:

/dev/sda  /mnt/flash  vfat  noauto,users,rw  0  0

Note the keyword users. The other alternative is owner,
which would be root. Also note the keyword noauto, that
means don't automatically mount, you could use auto.
