Hi Constantine, first thanks a lot for your quick response!
On umask: It doesn't look like that option will accept a user number...
it seems to be a permission mask for filesystems that don't support
builtin unix permissions
umask: octal file permissions
You can change permissions using the parameter umask. But be aware that
it must be the bitmask of permissions that are not present for the
mountpoint. It is an octal number, formed like this:
* character '0': Indicates that this is an octal number, not decimal.
* first digit: owner user permissions
* second digit: owner group permissions
* third digit: world permissions (every other user on the system)
