Hi!

I have a problem mentioned above. Only r00t can access these types of partitons, regular users can't.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this???

When mounting, there is a umask option, such as below. This example shows read only access.
Code:
[root@gatsby davew]# mount -t ntfs -o umask=0222 /dev/hda1 /mnt/nt
> [root@gatsby davew]# ls -l /mnt/nt
> total 16
> dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 4096 Mar 9 1997 Program Files
> dr-xr-xr-x 1 root root 20480 Dec 15 21:13 archive
> -r--r--r-- 1 root root 0 Nov 14 1996 autoexec.bat
> -r--r--r-- 1 root root 278 Nov 18 11:52 boot.ini


The same option can be used in /etc/fstab like so:
Code:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/ntfs ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0

I've had this problem also. My windows drive is labeled Windows in mnt, does that change anything?

HDA = Windows Partition. HDB = HD2, HD3, HD4 (Root, Swap, Home)

Even in my Browser the Windows partition is broken.

And should I partition my Linux HDD a different way? The Linux HDD is 10 Gig and the Windows is 80 Gig........

From the fstab on my lappy:
Code:

/dev/hda10 /home/fat vfat rw,auto,users,uid=1000,gid=100  0 0

This gives ownership and read/write access to my normal user. If you want others in the users group to have access just set the gid and skip the uid. I don't think that umask will work on vfat because it doesn't do permissions. NTFS support is still pretty shaky.

My apologies. I was responding to the original post, and in general to anyone involved in the thread. I hadn't actually read your post. I can understand why you thought it would be unprofessional.

Anyone else coming across this, please see the entry in the FAQ Forum on NTFS/VFAT permissions.
