    disk read write permissions-how to?

    Hi,my current configuration doesnt allow me to neither see nor write to the disks.What changes should I make to correct it? My fstab file is like below:

    /dev/hdc6 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hdc3 / ext3 defaults 1 1
    /dev/hdc1 /mnt/hdwin ntfs defaults 1 0
    /dev/hdc2 /mnt/hdwin2 ntfs defaults 1 0
    /dev/hdc5 /mnt/hdlin ext3 defaults,owner 0 0
    #/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you install ntfs-3g package? I am not a Slackware user and I dont know if its pre-installed in Slack.
    If ntfs-3g is installed then correct code is
    /dev/hdc1        /mnt/hdwin       ntfs-3g defaults,umask=0 0 0
    /dev/hdc2        /mnt/hdwin2 ntfs-3g defaults,umask=0 0 0
    All users will have default read/write access in NTFS partitions.
    If ntfs-3g is not installed, replace ntfs-3g with ntfs. Users will have read access only.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
