... for userS - there was no room for the 's' :)

I have a logical partition formatted with ntfs. If I try to mount it manually as root everything's ok. so I 've modified fstab to mount it automatically and to let it mount by every user:

/dev/hda7 /mnt/windows noatime,user 0 0


but still I can't mount it as user. I also put a file from that partition - when I was logged as root - into a user's home and it's not accessable by that user as well, as it's still of root property and the access is denied to others. How can I share this partition among every user like cdrom ?

Note: from kde i created an icon to mount cd rom as user and there's no problem. if I do the same with that partition it tells me I have no permission to do it.
