What are the partitions? Posting output of fdisk -l will give us this.

The second sentence does not make sense. Can you restate what you are trying to do?

i think he is talking about that all the rw (NTFS terror) permissions for that mounted drives and the permanent entry in /etc/fstab.

What is "NTFS terror"??
Sounds like a plague or something that was unleashed on the computing world.......

some linux distros doesn't have the option of "read" access to NTFS partition. Kernel has to be compiled for that.
those which have (and the compiled ones) still don't have "secure" write option for NTFS. And obviously i'm not telling you this b'coz i know u know all these things better than me.
So won't it be a "terror" kinda thing for newbies. "kernel compilation" itself is a challenging task for them.

Au contraire........I know very little. What I hope to do is to learn something from every thread.

In this case, the OP needs to check in and clarify what he is trying to do.....

Then you need to change the permissions... If I remember correctly, the permissions of the mount point is what counts. What is the result of "ls -l /mnt?
