FAT32 and NTFS write permissions
I am very new to linux and very eager to get this resolved...
Right now my fstab has the following two lines
/dev/sda1 /mnt/hd vfat iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0 ------ This is data drive ( external harddisk)
/dev/hda1 /mnt/nt auto iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0 ----- My Windows XP is installed on this partition.
For some strange reason I can access my external harddisk from linux as a regular user, but to access my XP partition I need to login as Root,
The second problem is I can only access them as read only. I desperately want to have write access to atleast my external disk. I did some search on this site for similar problems, but none helped me, like
When I open open Konqueror as root and try to change the permissions on either of mounts, it wont let me, I keep getting messages similar to " could not change permissions on mnt/nt " etc..
Any ideas how I can resolve this
