hmmm...seam to have hit a different problem...
I can mount the drives now no problem, but they are locked to the user account.
Root can see them...but not user 'noodles' can not.
Note: I moved the output to single line entries as I find it easy to read.
Oringinal break was where the "-" is now.

I've tried chmod 666 / 777 and recieve:
[root@u154n115 mnt]# chmod 666 ./noodles
chmod: changing permissions of `./noodles': Read-only file system
And chmod +rx /mnt/noodles
[root@u154n115 mnt]# chmod +rx /mnt/noodles
chmod: changing permissions of `/mnt/noodles': Read-only file system
[root@u154n115 mnt]# ls -l

Not sure where the problem is as chmod appears to have solved the issue for everyone else?
my user 'noodles' can seen and use /mnt/windows (fat32).
Figure the Ntfs of /mnt/noodles /mnt/charlene is the hurdle...but not sure why or how to
bypass as I'm only looking for read rights right now.
I have to run out of the house for a bit..but thanks for any/all help
