Hard Drive Permissions
There's probably been a lot of posts in regards to this, and here's another one. I've checked out a few of said posts on numerous sites, but they didn't end up being very helpful.
Here's the issue, I recently reformatted drive hdc, putting the files that were on it onto hdb. Now that hdc is formatted and partitioned as I want it to be, I want to move the files back over to hdc2 from hdb2. But it won't let me. I can't create folders or move files onto hdc2 as root, or as a user. I figure it's a drive permission issue..
I added the 'users' option to its dynamic entry, and apparently umask is a good thing to have, but I don't really know what all those options are. I also read somewhere that in order to have your changes take in fstab, you have to have your drives static, and not dynamic. How do I do that?
In addition to giving me advice to what I'm supposed to do to fix this, can someone explain/direct me to where I can find out what exactly all the terms mean?
Here's my current fstab: (I'm running MEPIS 3.3.1)
# Static entries below, do not use 'users' option in this area
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,noatime 1 1
/dev/hda2 swap swap sw,pri=1 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devmode=0666 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0622 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda3 /home ext3 defaults,noatime, 1 2
# Dynamic entries below, identified by 'users' option
/dev/hdb1 swap swap sw,pri=1 0 0
/dev/hdb2 /mnt/hdb2 reiserfs noauto,users,exec,noatime,notail 0 0
/dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdc1 ntfs noauto,users,exec,ro,umask=0222 0 0
/dev/hdc2 /mnt/hdc2 ntfs noauto,users,exec,ro,umask=0222 0 0

Second, you simply can't write to a NTFS formated drive in Linux, at least not easily or reliably."To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."
