How to automount non-Fedora partitions with permissions

Hi,
I have a Fedora 16/openSUSE system and I would like to be able to see all Linux partitions from Fedora, but with different permissions each partition. So far, I have edited the /etc/fstab
Code:
#
# /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Mon May  7 13:55:42 2012
#
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'
# See man pages fstab(5), findfs(8), mount(8) and/or blkid(8) for more info
#
UUID=f1b581c4-6b29-4b86-8ad7-d4f152312e3a /                       ext4    defaults        1 1
UUID=c155e845-4fff-4b65-b5e1-710ee7e810a1 /home                   ext4    defaults        1 2
UUID=9caf39a4-f482-486a-9e75-56788b5e04d5 swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
UUID=adb4b6bf-60cc-48f4-8ff4-b1eda526c703 /FoS                    ext4    defaults        0 0
[pascal@pascaLinux ~]$
The point /FoS refers to a partition that has me as the owner (pascal instead of root), a small partition that I can read/write from both systems. This is fine for that particular partition but not for the following two, i.e. / and /home of openSUSE I would like to add.

How do I proceed from here? And what do the numbers 1 1, 1 2, and 0 ,0 refer to?
Thanks in advance,

- Pascal

Sorry about my haste. I found my answer in http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html. [SOLVED]

I still have one question : why does my /etc/fstab file has lines like this
Code:
UUID=adb4b6bf-60cc-48f4-8ff4-b1eda526c703 /FoS                    ext4    defaults        0 0
instead of
Code:
/dev/sda4        /FoS                    ext4    defaults        0 0
I understand how to use the command blkid, but is it really necessary?

Re: How to automount non-Fedora partitions with permissions

It is better to use the UUID= or LABEL= method or referring to your partitions instead of the /dev/sdXx method.

It is possible that your devices may not be named the same every time you boot your machine, but the UUID and LABEL stays the same.
