This is getting pretty long, so whether I'll cover the CLI method is anybody's guess. (Turned out, "Not." Sorry.cry) But if you're such a CLI jockey, you're not reading this anyway, so....
What we're about to do here:
The deal is that user ownerships/permissions are based on UID (user ID) and GID (group ID). Every user has a numerical UID and is associated with one or more numerical GIDs. Two users might have the same username (theoretically, I don't think you can actually do that), but different UIDs, thus would not be the same user. So you're going to want to know what your UID is, and you're going to want a special GID for a special group.
Because you (as a user) want to own mounted partitions across various distros, and possibly share them to the network. This means that you will want to mount them to your /home/username directory, because you only own files in that directory, and you can only share files from that directory......
ignore what she goes on to say at your peril, you have been warned
