Stefan: Yeah.... I noticed that. If I become root, and chown the mounted floppy to bob:bob, then on all subsequent mounts of that particular media bob has write access; but ONLY after root intervention. What this means however, is that I can NOT set up a work-station where the user has no root access, and expect that user to effectively use the floppy drive. What a pain! The user can format, mount, and read; but until the media is choned to her/him, by root, they can't write. I didn't have this problem with Linux.
