[sigh] missed off the slashes

And you do that after each and every mount?

well no, I didn't read properly and was trying to be helpful without understanding what the problem was
what I do is if something isn't automagically mounted is look in
dmesg to see if something looks like that might be it and mount it somewhere, changing file permissions if need be. I sort of understand permissions but I've not really understood what "the sticky bit" is.
