You need to edit your /etc/fstab file. There are many ways and variations on how to do this, here is one :

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/win_c vfat uid=501,rw,exec,iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0

You can surely do what you want to do without modifications by doing it as root.




umount your fat32 partition and modify your line related to fat32 in your /etc/fstab file according to mine


/dev/hda6 /mnt/Datas vfat iocharset=iso8859-15,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0


I think that you'll have to add umask=0 .. not sure. Compare your fstab to this line


Once done, save fstab and remount your partition.
