Folder permisons on a NTFS parition


I just installed mandrake on the second machine which has two physical drives. It was an XP machine so the drives were NTFS. THe linux install went smooth, and i was able to figure out how to mount the second drive, and create a short cut to a folder. What i can't do is adjust persmissions so i can do more than just read.

I tried to adjust the permisson loged in as Root, but that didn't work either. Any idea's guys? One i get this solved, i then need to work on making the drive a network share, but first things first.

Mark.

Write support with NTFS is still experimental. However it is possible. If you really need to write to it check to see if your kernel is set up to properly. ie is NTFS write support compiled in to or is it a module.

Well, maybe i should yank the drive and drop it in the XP box, which is an easy option. The linux box is just for learning server and nerwork managing, nothing critical.

Thanks.

If a line in /etc/fstab exist for the ntfs partition then add the umask=000 to the option section to allow anyone to read and write if it is mouted as read-write mode. I would check Mandrake site to see if ntfs write is enabled.
