.... I am trying to mount my digital camera to download some pics I just 
took. When I do this as root, it works AOK & I got the pics off. 
However, when I changed my fstab file to (supposedly) allow regular 
users to mount that directory, the mount command fails:

[wam at kabini1, ~, 11:33:11am] 530 % mount /media/flash/
mount_msdosfs: /dev/da0s1: Operation not permitted
[wam at kabini1, ~, 11:35:58am] 530 %

relevant lines from my fstab file:

/dev/da0s1      /media/flash            msdosfs 
rw,sync,noauto,longnames,-Lru_RU.UTF-8,users    0       0
# /dev/da0s1    /media/flash            msdosfs 
rw,sync,noauto,longnames,-Lru_RU.UTF-8          0       0

FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE-p9

Not a huge issue, since I can get 'er done as root, but I don't see why 
this shouldn't be feasible as a regular user .... TIA & have a nice, 
snowy (here) day ;-) ....
