I can read and write to my internal Iomega 100mb zip drive in the root session. If I am in a non-root user session, I can read but can't write. I entered the command 'chmod a+w' to change permissions (as root). I did not get any msgs so I guess the command was executed. Still can't write to the zip drive (I can write to the floppy drive, fd0). I added rw to the fstab file line for the zip drive and then ran the 'mount -a' command as root. I can't find the answer in my books, can someone straighten me out? I have suse 9.1.

Add umask=000 option for read/write permissions fstab entry for the zip drive.

umask is the opposite of chmod. A 0 bit sets the permission.
