Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I ceated the group with gid 500 and I have my user in the group.
If I check the permissions from nautilus I see that /mnt/wind is in tat group and not in the root group. The owner still is root, and I don't want to change that.
How do I change the mode so my user (not root) can read and write all files inside that filesystem?
Well, after 10 reboots, I got it working. In the process I learned it does not make sense to remove the execute permission, doing it makes it impossible to do an ls or a cd and nautilus goes crazy and can list the contents prperly.
Here's the fin al version
/dev/hda5 /mnt/wind vfat rw,user,suid,umask=002,gid=500 0 0
and the result
drwxrwxr-x 10 root windaccess 16384 Dec 31 1969 wind
As my user is in the group, I can r and w it. Other users can read it. nice. Thanks.
EDIT: i just noticed, why does it have that timestamp????? Looks weird.....
