NTFS access almost but not quite there


Using Debian on seperate HD than windows. Configured fstab as follows:

Quote:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/hda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrom1 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/windows auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
Next I su and chmod 444 /media/windows. I then get "chmod: changing permissions of `/media/windows': Read-only file system". All I really want to do is read no writing.

What am I missing?

Change to 'ro'.

Well, that kinda worked. I can access with root but not any users. I have assigned the userrs to the disk group and that didn't work either.

Found my solution! The answer was:

chmod -R uog+w /media/windows

Hope this helps someone else
