    Help with permissions


    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I use CentOS and thiught it might go.

    Anyway, I'm trying to install America's Army. Since I don't have enough space on my Linux partition I decided to install it on a windows partition with sufficient space. However, I couldn't, as I didn't have write permissions. I have since changed /etc/fstab and added a "umask=0000" command, as I was told this would give all users full permissions. It is still, according to ls -l, owned and in the group of root. Here is my /etc/fstab:

    # This file is edited by fstab-sync - see 'man fstab-sync' for details
    LABEL=/ / ext2 defaults 1 1
    LABEL=/boot /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
    /dev/hda5 /windows/d vfat umask=0000 1 3
    /dev/hda3 /windows/c vfat defaults 1 4
    none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
    /dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t ,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,fscontext=system_u:object_r:removable_t ,exec,noauto,managed 0 0

    The "/dev/hda5" is the one I'm using. Did I input something wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

    try with :
    /dev/hda5 /windows/d vfat rw,defaults,umask=0000 0 0
    /dev/hda3 /windows/c vfat rw,defaults,umask=0000 0 0
    hope that helps

    Apparently it is still owned by root, and in root's group. I still don't have permissions.
