Re: [vox-tech] good reference source for fstab permissionsvariables/syntax

It also might be a umask thing, too.  Try adding the umask option as well:

  /dev/hdf4  /fat  vfat  user,rw,uid=donald,gid=donald,umask=0007  0 0

Then remove the stuff you don't need, since it's probably not ideal to
mount the partition with above UID, GID, and UMASK all the time.
