When mounting a vfat partition with fedora 18 all of the options gid, uid, fmask, and dmask are ignored and all file permissions are r/w only by root. Here is what I did:

mount /dev/sdb5 -o gid=1000,uid=1000 /mnt/fdrive touch /mnt/fdrive/foo.txt ls -l /mnt/fdrive/foo.tx -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 0 Jan 16 17:01 /mnt/fdrive/foo.txt

What happened, what is wrong?
