    Then you have a permissions issue. Post the contents of /etc/fstab and we'll get you straightened out.

    you need to change the options in the fstab try this:

    Code:
    /dev/hda1   /media/win/c vfat users,umask=0002,gid=users 0 0
    the umask, dmask and gid set the permissions of files, folders and the group owner, allowing your normal user write permissions to the mounted drives. also, the users at the start means that your normal user can mount/umount the drive

    Solution:

    SOLUTION:

    add this line:
    su - -c "/bin/bash startx" root

    to /etc/rc.d/after.local

    Then change your default run level to 3 in /etc/inittab

    done.
