    Cannot read my ntfs partition


    here's my fstab -
    dev/hda5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
    none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
    /dev/hda7 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
    none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/scd0,fs=udf:iso9660,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs iocharset=iso8859-1,umask=0,ro 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
    none /mnt/hd supermount dev=/dev/hdb1,fs=ext2:vfat,--,codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-1,kud zu 0 0
    /dev/hdb1 /mnt/files ntfs user,ro,noatime 0 0

    I am able to read this file as root but I am unable to read it with any other user. The file permissions are r-x------ on /mnt/files. I need to know how to mount it with permissions for my regular user.

    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs users,ro,umask=0222,auto 0 0

    That's mine, worth a go maybe

    I take it that the "umask" is the interesting bit? But, if that's the standard octel files permission mask, shouldn't it be 444 (to make it read only rather write only)?

    have fun
