Welcome to LQ.

1) Take a look at this guide:
http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/info/ntfs.html#4.0

2) There is a wealth of information and links about this on the LQ Wiki:

generally, it is a bad idea to give yourself full power for your user account. You'd be amazed at what you can break, so most people just use "su" to quickly change to root, do some task, and jump down.

Try using, the command `su` for, "Substitude user identity." You'll practically be root this way. You also can try issuing the command you did inside of the directory such as...

Quote:
$ cd /mnt; sudo mkdir data
Password:
$
Oh yeah, if you have any problems mounting... try checking your kernel .config file for NTFS support. I'm not sure if this is a default or not... if it's not you'll just have to recompile your kernel for NTFS support.

As for the browser problem... if you're running Mozilla there are a bunch of Mozilla fonts out there, they normally fix that problem if you install them with Mozilla. (Mozilla, and Firefox that is.)

Ouch, I never saw that error before. Try using, "su."

Example:
Quote:
$ su
Password:
# cd /mnt
# mkdir data
I'm going to assume the broken pipe was our little guy -> ';'.

Oh and about your browser... sorry I never used it. You might want to take a couple of other browsers for a spin, they might be worthy of your tastes =)

Well... I never have used Mandrake. I was always afraid it'd start controlling me like Windows did =(
I don't know what the problem to that is, sorry... although congrats on the success.
