vfat partition access denied


in my normal account, why i normaly get access denied message when i wanted to cut and paste files or folder from one folder to another folder in my fat32 partition which is mounted in my redhat9 linux in writeable format?

the files or folders that i cut and paste is the files that isnt used by the memory(i dont even opened that files or folder before).

i also sometimes cant extract compressed files (tar.bz2) under the same folder where the compressesed file is on fat32 partition because it said permmission is not allowed although i got my /etc/fstab set this way:-

/dev/hda11 /g vfat auto,umask=0 0 0

umask=000 suppose to allow all uses to read and write to that partition right?

i used kde rightclick and "extract here" which is basically and gui compressor programm called ark.

i'm not too sure, but it may be because you only have umask=0 rather than umask=000, i'd assume it was initially treated as a string rather than an integer... but what does ls -l tell you about the actualk permissions?
