ntfs mount can only be seen by root
One slight problem though: my ntfs mount (/dev/hdd1) can only be seen by root.
normally, its permissions are
obviously i want them to be dr-xr-xr-x
now, its /etc/fstab line is currently
/dev/hdd1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro 0 0
on FC6 I would have just changed it to
/dev/hdd1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,umask=0555 0 0
but on mandriva this just makes the permissions
I 've got a suspision it could be to do with the fact i selected 'paranoid' security level when configuring it. I'm beginning to regret that... can I change it to just 'higher' once it's installed?
I think you have the bits reversed. Use umask=0222 (or even umask=0).
man 2 umask says, "Specifically, permissions in the umask are turned off..."
You may also want to consider adding options like intr,_netdev,soft,bg,users.

I'm not entirely an expert at this
I'm attempting to mount my ntfs drives, but once they are mounted I still don't have permissions to access them. I'm using chmod while logged in as root , but I get this response:
[root@localhost media]# chmod u=rwx win_Games
chmod: changing permissions of `win_Games': Read-only file system
and nothing happens to the permissions. Any ideas?
Linux has NTFS read only access out of box. you can't write in NTFS partitions. install ntfs-3g package for NTFS write access.
