Accessing mounted fat32 partitions as user


HI. I am having trouble accessing my mounted fat32 partition on my user account, although it is fine with root.
Although ls -l shows 'rwxr--r--' I cant even ls the directories inside the main mount point without getting "permission denied"
Am I missing something??
Help?
Thanks!

A line like this in /etc/fstab should do you nicely. It allows any user read and write access to the partition:
Code:
/dev/hdb1     /mnt/music   vfat     umask=000,rw    0     0
Obviously replace /dev/hdb1 with your hard drive device and /mnt/music with your mount directory.
Hope this helps
Guy

Thank you!!!
I had tried putting "umask 007 /FATF" in rc.local, but it did not occur to me to put it in /etc/fstab.
Thanks!
