debian permissions with windows drive [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I have been trying to make my windows drive accessable from my user account. However, everytime I try to open it, a message box pops up and says that I don't have sufficient privilages. So I log on as root and when I got to change the privilages, it says that it cannot change the permissions. Below is a copy of my fstab file.


# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>	   <dump>  <pass>
proc			/proc		   proc	defaults		0	   0
/dev/hda6	   /			   ext3	defaults,errors=remount-ro 0	   1
/dev/hda5	   none			swap	sw			  0	   0
/dev/hdb		/media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,auto	 0	   0
/dev/hdc		/media/cdrom1   udf,iso9660 user,auto	 0	   0
/dev/fd0		/media/floppy0  auto	rw,user,noauto  0	   0
/dev/hda1	/mnt/windows	ntfs	rw,user,auto	0	0


Any help would be appreciated, im completely stumped.

to the line where you put user, etc. And change rw to ro, as Linux cannot write to NTFS by default, and not completely reliable right now at this moment in time if you had the right packages installed.
