I do this in /etc/fstab

<dev>   <mntpoint>   vfat   users,quiet,gid=users,dmask=007,fmask=117

This makes sure that the files are owned by group "users" and that
directories all have permissions drwxrwx--- and files have permissions
-rw-rw----. Then all you have to do is put the users you want to have
read and write access to the disk in the group "users". Of course you
could create your a new group specifically for this, and tinker with the
dmask and fmask to finesse it to meet your exact needs.

Best, Darren
