mount question



If I let HAL & friends automagically mount my Windows partition mount reports this: 
 
# mount 
... 
/dev/sdb1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096) 
 
The problem is that I want this partition mounted on /mnt/c_drive not 
/media/disk so I tried to add a line to /etc/fstab as follows: 
 
/dev/sdb1    /mnt/c_drive       fuse    rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096    
0 0 
 
(I started with a type of fuseblk instead of fuse but that didn't work at all 
and note that fuse is not documented in the mount man page) 
 
but then as root 
# mount /dev/sdb1 
/bin/sh: /dev/sdb1: Permission denied 
 
# ls -l /dev/sdb1 
brw-r----- 1 root disk 8, 17 2009-01-12 13:24 /dev/sdb1 
 
It's not a selinux problem because I'm running in permissive mode: 
# sestatus 
SELinux status:                 enabled 
SELinuxfs mount:                /selinux 
Current mode:                   permissive 
Mode from config file:          permissive 
Policy version:                 23 
Policy from config file:        targeted 
 
This is on an F8 system and I'm trying to get my backup to work so I can upgrade 
to F9. 
 
What am I doing wrong here? 
 
Thanks, 
Steve
