Allow to set the owner of a partition

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Duplicate of #305075

Description

If a user buys a new external harddrive and partitions it via YaST he will not be able to write on it, since the filesystem is owned by root. A normal user would need to know about how to use konsole and which command to use in order to change the owner.
It would be a lot easier, if the user could change the owner within the partitioning module. Of course this should not be possible for system-partitions such as / and /usr etc, yet /windows and /media, as well as /home/xyz/ should be fine.
The problem is not trivial as it is not enough to change fstab. See:
