[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
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
