usb hdd mounting read-only


Hi,

I'm using dropline gnome 2.16 with Slack 11. I just bought a Maxtor OneTouch III usb hard drive. When I plug it in it automatically mounts, but as read-only. I know my way around the fstab, but I have commented out all the /dev/sda entries. How do I change read/write permissions in the brave new udev/hal world?

...it seems to be formatted ntfs. Could this be the problem?
