folder permissions /fat-c


I have two ntfs partions mounted on Slackware. I have read, write access from root, but from a regular user account I can't even view the files. How can I change that? I want to read/write from a regular user account to /fat-c & /fat-d

Ummm..... What? My /etc/fstab looks like this:

Code:
/dev/hda6        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/hda5        /                ext2        defaults         1   1
/dev/hda1        /fat-c           ntfs        ro               1   0
/dev/hdb1        /fat-d           ntfs        ro               1   0
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
What is it I need to change?
