ntfs problems


I downloaded the correct rpm and duly installed it. As root created 2 directories -hda1 and hda2 in /mnt. chown to myself, then created an ntfs group and added the users on my system to it. chgrp to ntfs and added the partitions to /etc fstab to mount at boot in read only. If I log in as any other than root it says I don,t have enough permisions to read it! Can anyone help....
Thanx

the umask is a mask on the permissions byte in octal.
000 mask will give everybody all rights to the filesystem.
i would have to experiment some, but 222 give read-only to
normal users, i think.

i don't really know how it works.

I have done that also.

I have found that the partitions no longer mount to my desktop but. Is there a way of getting this back or am i being a pain?

My fstab

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hda7 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/c ntfs defaults,umask=000 0 0
/dev/hda5 /mnt/h ntfs defaults,umask=000 0 0
/dev/cdrom1 /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

Thanks wiraone. Your example fixed it!
Thankyou.

Yeah it wasn't mounting to the desktop in gnome but it's all good now!
