    Nope sorry no dice. (it is hda by the way not hdb). I also tried the same code but changing to uid and gid to my uid and gid and still no dice. It is very strange that this isn't working below is my entire fstab file, maybe that will help

    /dev/hdb5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
    /dev/hdb7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
    /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 user,iocharset=iso8859-1,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
    /dev/hdd /mnt/cdrom2 auto umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,ro,exec,users 0 0
    none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=ext2:vfat,--,umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat umask=0000,dmask=0000,uid=500,gid=500,users 0 0
    /dev/hdb6 swap swap defaults 0 0

    try this in your fstab file
    /dev/hdb1 /mnt/windows auto umask=0,user,noauto,rw,exec,users 0 0
    this is similar to mounting my win xp ntfs drive, the auto parameter allows for automatic file system detection, you may wish to replace it with vfat or fat. One of the entry for user allows normal users to mount the drive with a mount /mnt/windows command, and the rw tells it to mount it as read/write.

    Sorry I was out of town for a few days. For anyone else having a similar problem, instead of mounting it to your root directory, just mount it to your Home directory instead. I did that and it solved all my problems,

    ps. Thanks everyone for your suggestions
