Flash media + fstab in Slackware 11 problem
I appologise in advance for the small novel, but I wanna be clear and thurough in my description.
Ok. Distro is Slackware 11, 220.127.116.11 kernel, extramodules installed. All hardware is being detected and working, (with the exceptiuon of my printer, listed, but I think CUPS is not setup all the way).
The hardware is my primaryrig, (in my sig) , and the card reader is an OTi 7-in-one that connects to the motherboard, (where a USB would got, 9-pin connector).
I can mount the flash cards and USB drive as root to a /mnt/tmp, and get to the data and do whatever I need to with it on the flash as user once root has mounted the device, but I cannot get fstab setup to be able to mount the 'drives' from the user's desktop.
I've tried the following settings in /etc/fstab:
/dev/sd*(sdb-sdf respectively)____/mnt/memory, /mnt/flash, /mnt/usb, mne/OTi_**_CARD_Reader_0123456789abcdef (this last one is how /dev/disk/by-id shows each card slot where ** would be MS, CF, SD, etc...)
I've tried adding "part1" to both parts of the /dev and /mnt portions, adding just a "1" to both parts, tried replacing "/dev/" with "/mnt" and vice versa, tried adding "grep=100" to the column wehre you have "noauto,user,rw,umask=000", tried setting it to "/dev/usb" in the first column, tried a few other settings (seems I've tried everything) but nothing works. Every time I write to fstab, I gt the pop up window about "new device found", so I know the write is happening, but I've just got something wrong.
I posted over on Linuxquestions,org, and one user there got me this far, (to be able to get to the data via /mnt/tmp) but he's not familiar with KDE and can't help me any further.
I've searched the web, googled several different trms, read the Slackware FAQ (it's in my bookmarks now), read a few otehr FAQs and How-To's, but I'm not finding an answer.
Lastly, I'm thinking it's something simple, since it's working and all, just not the way I'm *thinking* it should.
Can someone help me get the flash drives to mount for user in the desktop environment?
EDIT: Oops! My sig don't show my hardware anymore.

(the cardreader) OTi 7-in-one
The SCSI drives are in a hot-swap bay, not dual-boot

can you post your fstab?"There are only 10 kinds of people in the world, those that can read binary, and those that cannot."

Hmmm...not sure how to do that other than type what I see...
I'll be on Slack tonight and I'll do just that, but it's not got any entries for the card reader, I've deleted what entries I added because they did not work. But I'll show what it has now....
BTW, I see it in forums all over, how do I post "text"?
