Mount Rights Problem


Hi,

it seems weird posting in newbie section, but i think this post should be here anyways.

I have successfully installed Suse 9.3 on my Dell D400 having one separate partition for all concerned documents and downloads just in case i won't ever want to reinstall or change OS. Question is ..

Suse has automatically mounted this separate partition and when i login using other account then root i can't seems to create any folders in it just access it. now the weird part is if i do try to change the owner permission or try to take the owner ship of this mount i can't do that. i have tried umounting the partition and then remount and i tired serveral other ways but i can't get it done. Any help would be apperciated

What does its entry in /etc/fstab look like?

Code:
/dev/hda1            /windows/C           vfat       ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
or similar? If you're member of group users all should be well
for you ...



Cheers,
Tink

Do you actually utilise the acls and extended attributes?
If you don't just try to put "defaults" instead, and maybe
check the permissions on the mountpoint /Downloads
(while it's unmounted).


Cheers,
Tink
