NTFS fstab issues



Ok, I'm having some issues with mounting an ntfs partition in fstab. Perhaps I am just doing something wrong, and maybe somebody here can tell me what it is, before I file a bug report...

The following line mounts perfectly as root, but will not work as a normal user:

/dev/sda2 /mnt/windows ntfs-3g defaults,users,noatime,sync,noauto 0 0

The command I'm using from the command line both as root and as normal user is: mount /dev/sda2

Permissions on /mnt/windows is rwx for everybody. It also doesn't matter if I specify the type to be ntfs, ntfs-3g, or auto. Nor does it matter if I have the defaults option prior to the others or not.

On a side note, I've noticed that the verbose flag for mount does nothing, unless I mount as type "auto", then it only says a "I will try ntfs" message (this message appears as both root and normal user). Shouldn't it show some messages when it fails?
