mount access


ok i'm running RH9 and i have an ntfs drive a mounted and added to the fstab it's there and i can see it.. i can access the content of my mount (/mnt/win) when i'm root, but not when i'm a regular user...

my fstab looks like this:
/dev/hdd1 /mnt/win auto defaults 0 0


i have the file mounted and it's shown on my gnome desktop i open it and i get an error saying that i don't hod the correct permissions to view it
yet i can mount and unmount it...

Uh-huh ...

I've seen a few threads that achieve what you
asked with slightly different methods ... maybe
search again?



Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: As for the post above: replace the defaults with
user, but you could have found that in the threads
from the search, too.
