Change permissions on ntfs drive


Is there a way to change all the permissions to all of the folders and files on my ntfs drive at once? I can use the chmod command to change one file/folder at a time. I have 7000 songs I'd like to play, and doing that all by hand would suck.
Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Thanks,
brad

PS I've tried changing my fstab to
/dev/hde1 /mnt/mass ntfs noauto,user,ro,umask=0222 0 0

I have to be root and must be in a terminal to view/edit/execute/anything.... I sucks.

find . -exec chmod 700 {} \;

to change files only:

find . -type f -exec chmod 700 {} \;

to change dirs only:

find . -type d -exec chmod 700 {} \;
