Oddly, if I make the directories /dosd and /dosc change the owner
to admin:wheel and update my fstab I can access those as my user 
(admin) but not when fstab is as quoted above ie under /mnt? I dont 
get this as I have often used /mnt/dos type scheme in the past? It
seems as though /mnt has some special property? Perhaps I need to go
back to basics of chmod in symbolic mode?
