[svlug] ext2 mount options on 1394 drive

I've got a nifty little external firewire/usb2 2.5" harddrive enclosure
that I've been using for backups with rsync, and lines in /etc/fstab
/dev/sda1 /mnt/exthd1 vfat noauto,user,rw 0 0
/dev/sda2 /mnt/exthd2 ext2 noauto,user,rw 0 0
When I mount the vfat partition, /mnt/exthd1 is temporarily chown'ed to
my user name and chmod'ed to 775 during the mount. I thought this was
controlled by the 'user' mount option. However, this is not happening
when I mount the ext2 partition. I can mount the drive, but /mnt/exthd2
is still owned by root and 755, which means I can't write to it.
Is there an ext2-specific mount option I am missing for this setup?
