    ntfs - no user access


    I've got a problem with mounting an ntfs file system. I can mount the drive as root or as a user but when trying to read the actual data, I get denied of access as a user. Here's my /etc/fstab
    Code:
    /dev/hda4  /  ext3  errors=remount-ro  0  1
    /dev/hda3	 none  swap  sw  0  0
    proc  /proc  proc  defaults  0  0
    /dev/fd0  /floppy  auto  user,noauto  0  0
    /dev/cdrom  /cdrom  iso9660  ro,user,noauto  0  0
    /dev/hda1  /mnt ntfs  ro,user,noauto  0  0
    As you can see, the ntfs file system is on my first partition on my first IDE primary hard drive.. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Is the file's mode 444 or 400? I'm guessing 400, since the umask is 077 by default for ntfs, but you can reconfigure this by giving e.g. umask=022 when mounting the ntfs volume.
