this is my /etc/fstab output

When I use pysdm all of the rw,user is defined as default.
I have jacked around with pysdm and /etc/fstab till I'm about to come uncorked.
Yes, I have RTFM till I can't bear it any more, and followed the 'step-by-step' on-line how-tos, but to no avail.
Either way I can read and write to one, but not both usb drives.
Am I just really dumb, or just missing something???
Any help will be much appreciated.
here i made a easy tutorial to auto mount a hard drive with fstab http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1500031
The above link is working, let me know if you have a problem with it.
Thanks, bodhi.zazen! This is a great tutorial, and I use it whenever I need some info on the fstab.

Rsync DOESN'T Preserve File Owner & Permission - Using Automounted NTFS backup drive
Also located here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1568402
Hi, this is my machine:
1x 80gb - /boot, /swap, /(root) - sda
1x 80gb - /home - sdb
1x 250gb - /backups - sdc
1. First of all, I automount sdc /backups via /etc/fstab like this:
2. Second I use a rsync to backup my /boot/ /(root) and /homeCode:
/dev/disk/by-label/backups /media/backups ntfs defaults,uid=1000 0 2
When I check sdc (my ntfs backup drive), all files in there are 777, whereas it should be 755, and sometimes the owner is me, whereas it should be ROOT.Code:
rsync --delete -avz /boot /media/backups/boot/
As an experiment, I backed up my files NOT in sdc (my ntfs backup drive), but in my /home folder instead, RESULT: every thing is OK, and it preserved file owner & permission!
Is there something I'm missing here? Is there something I don't understand?
Please help because I'm learning to BACKUP my system. Thanks for reading, bodhi. :)
Thank you bodhi!
Now, I understand, it's a shame I didn't read your whole tutorial, maybe you already NOTED it there?
Can you make a tutorial for lazy bums? Just kidding. :)
