Re: [vox-tech] good reference source for fstab permissions variables/syntax

Last but not least, whenever you use vfat, you should use the "showexec" option as well, so that execute bits are handled correctly (unset for regular files, set for directories, subject to the umask. Otherwise they'll all be set, even for regular files)

It also might be a umask thing, too. Try adding the umask option as

/dev/hdf4 /fat vfat user,rw,uid=donald,gid=donald,umask=0007 0 0

Then remove the stuff you don't need, since it's probably not ideal to
mount the partition with above UID, GID, and UMASK all the time.
