i just installed a fresh copy of kubuntu to my pc, after trying out various other distro's and deciding i liked kubuntu best. anyways, i have a fat32 partition on my pc so that i cna share stuff between my windows and linux partitions. my fstab line has always read
umask=000,rw 1 0
and this has always given me read/write access to the partition as a normal user. now i entered the same line to my fstab, and all my documents in the partition are appearing as read-only! what changed? how can i get the read/write access to the partition back?
