hi people, i have 2 hd's in my machine, one is partitioned for windoze and linux, the other is just a vfat data hd. now the problem is that i can not write to the second hd when logged in as a user, as all permissions are set to root. now when i log in as root, and just right click and hit properties on any of the directories, i can view the permissions, but cant change them, if i change the ownerships, it tells me i dont have enough access to do it, and if i change any of the check box things, as soon as i close the properties box it re-sets to how it was before.
now im completely stumped as to why it wont let me change this, everything in fstab is right as far as i can tell... or at least is the same as for the windoze partition and it will let me write to that.... so any ideas guys?
ps, hope that all makes sence
