data. It was mounted as "/MyDoc". After running Edubuntu I can't write to the the partition. The permissions say it belongs to "root". What can I do?
You have to edit the folder permissions as superuser or root (probably also changing /etc/fstab), otherwise the folder will be useless for the average user. This link might be useful:

It might be as easy as logging into edubuntu as root. I'm not sure if edubuntu is the same as ubuntu where the default setup does not allow root to log into gdm, you can change this by the system menu -> login screen setup -> security tab, and check the box to allow root to log into gdm. btw, does edubuntu run gnome or another desktop.
also just an interesting tid bit. to change root password run
sudo passwd root
enter your user password and change the root pass.
