Access to location denied
I just mounted a windows drive and here's the story:
1. I mounted the partition with mount.
2. My fstab file is correct, like this:Code:
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/win_c ntfs iocharset=iso8859-1,ro 0 0
4. When i try to open it, there's a msg that says: "Unable to enter file:mnt/win_c. You do not have access rights to this location."
What's wrong with it?

It sounds to me like the user account you are trying to mount that drive with does not have permissions to that folder in root. You should be able to fix this problem by simply changiing the permissions on that directory to match that of your floppy/cdrom drive, which I assume all users have access to. Assuming that the directory for your floppy/cdrom drive is located in /mnt, simply executingCode:
chmod --reference=/mnt/cdrom /mnt/win_c

also, keep in mind that unless you specify a umask for winblows drives in fstab, you will *not* be able to read/write to them unless you are the user that mounted the drive. no matter what the perms are on the mount point. this is because M$ fs's are horribly broken and do not support multi-user posix permissions schemes.... so a umask allowing at least reading by all is necessary..
this has been covered before, but i've forgotten where/what the posts were...Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr

Ok, let's go ahead and get this thing done. I am sick of not being able to view my files. Ok now, i've tried every single thing you have said here. And i still can't have access, the same error shows up. Here's a link where the procedure is explained in better detail than some other's i read.
Also, is there like a way to verify if the fstab has any errors, um, like bad number of parameters or parameters misspelled. I ask cause i think samba's config file does have a function that verifies if the file has been corrupted. I don't quite recall.
BTW, how do i kill konqueror when it freezes? I type top on a terminal but can't find a significant name (the only thing i hate about linux) for this process. I need it's PID to kill it and start over, i hate stalled windows.
Um, i now have access to both ntfs partitions, and here are the lines for those partitions in etc/fstab
/dev/hdc5 /mnt/win_d ntfs users,owner,rw,umask=000 0 0 /dev/hdc6 /mnt/win_e ntfs users,owner,rw,umask=000 0 0
