Can only access NFS mounted drives as root ... why?

I am able to successfully mount remote
drives using NFS. But, I can only access those mounted drives as root. As a normal user, when I do a df or ls, I get:
df: /mnt/remote_drive: Permission denied
ls: /mnt/remote_drive: Permission denied  

My /etc/fstab entry is:
remote_host:/remote_drive /mnt/remote_drive     nfs user,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,hard,intr 0 0

How do I permit access as a normal user?
Thanks,
Dave

Check the permisions of the mnt directory.  If you plan on leaving this mounted all of the time, you probably want to create another directory just for that purpose and set up a group which has permission to access that diretory.  Then place the users who you want to give access to in that group.

Wow, do I feel dumb! Yes, /mnt was
denying access to user. Problem fixed.
Thanks,

This is the error message I got (CODE) Error caused by incompatible libmp3lame 3.98-2 with ffmpeg I've googled this error message and found out sometimes it attaches this note "can be treated with downgrade libmp3lame to version 3.97 or 3.98" …
