permission wont do for ntfs


i am now in kevinling account

/d is owned by root

i used it to mount ntfs d:\ partition to /d folder
i have
# su
# password:
# chmod -Rv a+rx /d
mode of `/d' changed to 0555 (r-xr-xr-x)

then i mount my d:\ which is /dev/hda5

# mount -t ntfs /dev/hda5 /d -r

then try to access /d and it said permission denied.

why is this happenning?
the output said that i can read and execute for all users.

i am trying follow the principal and use a normal account in my RH9
i was used to root account where i dont care about permissions.
after all of these permissions denied problem it makes me wanted to go back using
root account

Also search for 'uid=' & 'gid=', this lets you set ownership. To add options with mount's 'o' option:
mount -t ntfs /dev/hda5 /d -o uid=demmylls

As far as I know, it is still in an experimental state and it is said to be dangerous to use. Just wait for some more time.
