i want them to access the hda1


Quote:
/dev/hdb1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /fat-c vfat root,n0x 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

Mabe if you edit like this:

/dev/hda1 /fat-c vfat user 1 0

You can also try to check what perms are set to the dir /fat-c. I've seen cases in where these perms were the problem.

"cd" to / and then do a
ls -l |grep fat-c
and post here the result.



To copy the prefs, as root, do this (notice, I'm not sure about it):

- Create the new user nOx
- As root, go to root home and copy the dir .gnome (where are all the prefs)
- Go to nOx home and paste it.
- Now you have to change all perms to own the dirs and files to nOx

If it doesn't work, just remove the dirs you pasted.
