Oh, well then doesn't that negate its usefulness as a debugging tool?
OK. Even if I drop the -f (why oh why can't it be used as a user???) I
still can't mount the partition.
[kathryn at Galaxy ~]$ mount /Vista
mount: only root can mount /dev/sda1 on /Vista

Can you explain how those work (in small words please)? I don't think I
ever got a grasp on umask. uid and gid would just be my user and group ids?
(how to find those?).
/me notes that the mount man page I printed out from the web seems to be
missing everything on ntfs...
