If a user buys a new external harddrive and partitions it via YaST he
will not be able to write on it, since the filesystem is owned by root.
A normal user would need to know about how to use konsole and which
command to use in order to change the owner. It would be a lot easier,
if the user could change the owner within the partitioning module. Of
course this should not be possible for system-partitions such as / and
/usr etc, yet /windows and /media, as well as /home/xyz/ should be
fine. The problem is not trivial as it is not enough to change fstab.
