Question Can't access NTFS partitions from mandriva 2007


Hello,

When I installed mandriva 2007 (non free kde one iso)by default windows NTFS partitions were not mounted. I had mounted them and they appeared in Devices menu. But when I tried to enter, access was denied because i was loged like user not like root- it was set by default that root is owner of it. From command line (loged like root) I can see NTFS partitions.

I tried to change ownership of that NTFS partitions with chown command but still nothing (I changed that owner is not root any more but me as regular user). It seems that it did't realy change ownership of NTFS partition.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks

Add this line in /etc/fstab (replace hdevice and mount_point by what is relevant to your system) :

/dev/hdevice /mnt/mount_point ntfs umask=0,user,nls=iso8859-15,ro 0 0
