Fat partition

Slackware correctly identified my fat32 partition and added it to my fstab, and while I could mount it as an ordinary user, nobody could write to it. After some web searching I altered my fstab line for the fat32 partition and every thing went fine. File below: ==========================================================================

/etc/fstab
/dev/hda9        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/hda7        /                ext2        defaults         1   1
/dev/hda8        /home            ext2        defaults         1   2
/dev/hda6        /fat32           vfat        users,umask=000   1   0
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
====================================================================================
