Can't change the read permissions on an NTFS partition as root?


I've just recently installed Slackware 10, and after I mounted my NTFS pertition, I was unable to access it except as root. Even when logged in as root I am unable to change the folder permissions. Help?

You can not change folder permissions when the partition is mounted.

Change to
/dev/hda1 /windows ntfs umask=222 0 0
