the fstab file:
[thufir localhost ~]$ cat /etc/fstab
# This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2 vfat auto,rw,user 0 0
/dev/hdc                /media/cdrecorder       auto    pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,ro,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
/dev/fd0                /media/floppy           auto    pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
[thufir localhost ~]$

on my gnome desktop panel is an icon of a hard drive:
disk mounter preferences: /mnt/hda2

clicking on it gives:

Canno mount device

Drivemount command failed.
"umount /mnt/hda2 2>&1" reported:
umount: only root can unmount /dev/hda2 from /mnt/hda2

what needs to be changed to get the icon to mount the vfat partition?

thanks,

Thufir
