USB stick with ext2?



Howdy!

When I insert a USB thumb drive formatted with vfat, it gets
automagically mounted under /media with appropriate permissions so the
logged in user can write to the device. But if the thumb drive is
formatted ext2, only root can write to it.

$ mount
/dev/sdb1 on /media/Devel type ext2 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal)
/dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type vfat
(rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,shortname=lower,uid=500)
$ ll
total 20
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root  4096 2009-01-05 21:27 Devel
drwxr-xr-x 3 alan root 16384 1969-12-31 16:00 disk

Is there a way to make that work?
