    Windows partition - change Rights in Linux

    Hi all
    simple question

    I got a partition (FAT32) formated from windows
    Created 1 folder (unix)

    I go in Linux(mandrake 10.1)
    get to that HD
    log as root
    ls -l
    drwxrwxr-x unix

    chmod 777 unix
    ls -l
    drwxrwxr-x unix

    chmod o+w unix
    ls- l
    drwxrwxr-x unix

    All im trying to do, is that in that folder I want to save dloads from the internet but as you probly guessed, i cannot save to that directory Access denied

    so here I am getting irritated....

    I thought of formating the drive from linux but I wanted to understand what was the issue before.
