gaining priveleges to entire NTFS volume


i have mounted a NTFS volume from my internal hard drive into etch. problem is im having a hard time with the chmod commands to gain access to the whole volume, and all its directories and files.

it seems that i have to specify the exact one way path to a directory to get access to it.

i thought the chmod -R command would give me access to all the directories and files on my NTFS D: drive, but it only lets me open the volume to see all of the other directories, but i cannot get access to them if i dont keep specifying the exact path.
surely there has to be a quick way to make this whole volume r-w-x by me?

thanks

You can try using ntfs-3g and changing the options in fstab. I found this tutorial. It looks like from when Etch was "testing", but should work. I'm not sure why they use umask=0, I think it should be umask=0777, but I'd try it their way first...

You can install ntfs-3g with apt or synaptic and the dependencies (fuse and fuselibs) will also get installed without having to do it the long way as described in that tutorial. I once set up my fstab similar to the way described in that tutorial but now only use a generic line as such after creating a /data directory for my ntfs data partition:
Code:
/dev/sda3 /data ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

Fuse has to be 2.6 or later for ntfs-3g to work.
