In NetBSD, a file system can only be mounted by an ordinary user
who owns the point node and has access to the special device
(at least read per- missions). Also, the vfs.generic.usermount
sysctl(3) must be set to 1 to permit file system mounting by
ordinary users, see sysctl(8). Finally, the flags nosuid and nodev
must be given for non-superuser mounts.
The other option is to use amd.

I don't see the amd.conf in my etc file.
I've added nodev and nosuid to the fstab option.
Is there a way of changing permissions on the device to allow normal users
to the device?
