I've got a seperate fat32 partition that I need to give full user permissions to. I mean, where joe schmoe can read/write/execute from it.
I thought the mount options "user,exec,nosuid,rw" would do the trick. But it ain't working. Root can flip through just fine, but my "normal" user can't; I get shot down when I go to move files (write) to it.
I do I mount this entire partition with unrestricted access for all users?
It is totally uncool, and slightly o-fensive, to make jokes with someone who is so new they will screw the system completely. Do I need to get rid of the "user, exec, nosuid, rw" stuff, or will it matter? And what the heck kind of an option is "--". I can't find that one anywhere in any how-to's or my bible. It's put on default for my cdrom reader.
It was not a joke. To get your wanted umask, you take the permissions you want and subtract them from 777. Thus a umask of 007 gives you permissions of 770. It was a legit answer. He made no joke and I am offended at your response to somebody trying to help you with your problem. There is no intention from his statement to do harm to your system.

Oops, looks like it is 0777... I'm not chmod expert, so I just took a few things off of a site I found. 0007 is to let others read/write/etc, 0070 is for group, and 0700 is for owner (as I understand it that is). So to make it readable by everyone, it should be 0777.
Besides, James Bond is 007, not 0007.
