Re: Did you know ...
OK, now as a "standard" user (non-root) I can mount, read/write/execute,
and unmount my zip disk. Great! ...
But I can't eject the zip disk unless I login as root?
Is there a way to add devices to the Red Hat desktop? The default
device icons include floppy(/dev/fd0) and cdrom(/dev/cdrom).
I tried adding my zip disk to autofs (/etc/auto.master ...), but I still
can't seem to add an icon like the ones for cdrom and floppy. If you
right click on those icons, you get options such as mount, unmount,
eject ... very helpful for my users ...
