Been there, done that...
/dev/sda1 /Vista ntfs rw,noauto,user 0 0
[kathryn at Galaxy ~]$ ls -l /
drwxr-xr-x 25 kathryn kathryn 16384 1970-01-01 09:00 Data
drwxr-xr-x 2 kathryn kathryn 4096 2008-06-29 16:48 Vista
[kathryn at Galaxy ~]$ mount -f -v /Vista
mount: only root can do that
The -f was there for debugging purproses. I got the same behavior (failure
to mount as myself) just doing `mount /Vista` and `mount -v /Vista`.
Same thing if I substitute owner for user.
I'd give up on this, but it's driving me crazy as to why it doesn't work. I
should pop over to my Kubuntu partition and try it there...
