I tried to change /etc/fstab as su and used Kwrite, but when I tried
to save the changes I got the message:
it's not possible to write to file:///etc/fstab

How can I overcome this barrier?

/etc/fstab is owned by <root> and you do not have rights to edit as
/<user>. To make changes, you must become <root>, ie: sudo or su.

I did it for su as well as for root!!

note: be sure to save a copy of fstab prior to editing just in case
you do something the system doesn't like :^)....
