    How can I get access rights to the other hard drives (windows-etc) on my system.
    They are locked....

    you must be root/superuser to access those disks. or edit fstab file and set umask=0 for normal users access.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thank you for you reply,
    I'm searching.
    found fstab, I can open it.
    as user I can't save it.
    How do I set root/superuser in freespire?
    or how can a user change the rwx on the fstab file?

    I like freespire, but it has dummy locks.

    You'll have to edit fstab as root. If you're doing it graphically, then you'll need to log into your root/administrator account. If your comfortable with the command line you can do it as normal user. To do it as normal user open a terminal and:
    su -
    nano /etc/fstab
    You can, of course, replace nano with any preferred text editor.

    Then just do what casper told ya to.
