[Linux-cluster] mounting as non root

  I tried that, unsuccessfully.
  The relevant line in my fstab is:
/dev/gnbd/disk  /mnt/shared    gfs2    user,noauto     0       0

  And this is the error msg when trying "mount /mnt/shared" as a non root user
/sbin/mount.gfs2: error mounting /dev/gnbd/disk on /mnt/shared: Operation not permitted

  Any suggestions?
  Lots of thanks.

It is from "man mount"

       (iii) Normally, only the superuser can mount file systems.
However, when fstab contains the user option on a line, anybody can
mount the corresponding system.

       Thus, given a line
              /dev/cdrom  /cd  iso9660  ro,user,noauto,unhide
       any user can mount the iso9660 file system found on his CDROM
using the command
