... I searched all the forums and tried all postings but still can't seem to get this 100% right.
I installed Slackware 9.1 on a free partition along side Windows ME formatted with FAT32. There is also another harddrive with WinME and FAT32. During the Slackware installation, it asked me if I wanted access to these drives and I answered 'yes'. They are automatically mounted as /fat-c and /fat-d. When I log in as root, I can go into these directories, edit existing files, and overwrite them just fine. When I log in as another user (uid=1000, primary group=users, alt group=root), I can go into these directories and although I can read existing files, I can not overwrite them. I do have the ability to create new files in those directories. I tried all the fstab suggestions I've seen posted here on linuxquestions (great site, BTW) but I haven't found my answer. I've even tried the alternative sites as one posting suggested - it helped me understand the fstab options better but did not solve my problem entirely.
Here is my fstab:
/dev/hdb5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb6 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda1 /fat-c vfat auto,users,rw,umask=0000,gid=users 1 0
/dev/hdb1 /fat-d vfat auto,users,rw,umask=0000,gid=users 1 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,users 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
How do I get *full* read/write access (i.e. overwrite existing files) from a user (non-root) account?
Thanks, and I appologize if this sort of thing is over-posted.
