hello guys...
I am a little bit new to linux, but i have created partitions on my gentoo.I am trying to give access to the user on partition /dev/hda7 where if i give command chown <user> /D_drive i get this output :

localhost muhsin # chown muhsin /Drive_D/
chown: changing ownership of `/Drive_D/': Operation not permitted

here is my /etc/fstab configuration file:

/dev/hda7 /Drive_D vfat noatime,users 0 2

Notice that the command was executed as a root and the partition is already mounted:
Any help will be really appreciated....

An easier way, if you only have one user, is just add umask=0 to the /etc/fstab options where you have users listed, so:

Code:
/dev/hda7 /Drive_D vfat umask=0,noatime,users 0 2
