Talking Chmod


For some reason when I installed my RH9 I only had one user under Gnome and could only login as root. I have now added myself as a second user and think I've added the user to the necessary groups, (appears to be working anyway).

Right enough of the background drivel, my question is

I have two NTFS partitions mounted which I have read only access when I login as root. I want to have the same access rights to them when I login as my new second user, at the moment it isn't letting me read them when I'm not logged in as root. How can I do this ?

I think it's something to do with CHMOD command and have read the help file, I understand the +r +rw bits but don't see how to apply it to all users.

Thanks
