You may want to try adding the mount option 'umask=000' to make it possible for all users to read from and write to the fat32 partition.

Nothing changed at all
Error while copying to "/mnt/windows".

You do not have permissions to write to this folder.


I dont know why it is showing that....

Ok, you can't write to that directory as only root has permission to write to it. Try adding "-o umask=000" to the mount options (or just the umask=000 in fstab).

Now again another ques is not there any way to install any linux software like what we do in windows?? That means the exe right button click and the installation interface all quiet and perfect. Now linux is very good except this software installation process...
Again I have installed rplayer but I couldn't play more than one song at a time I have to select single song every time . It doesnot have any list or library how pathetic...
What is the problem and what should I do...But in windows the same player (here real player 10) has a list and there anyone can save 100 songs at a time....

Geh... Real Player sucks. :-P

Use xmms.

Linux has a better way to install software: a single interface to install basically everything without even hunting for installers.

Under Debian-based distributions, it's called Synaptic.

I am using Fedora core5 so is it possible to use synaptic anyway

Not sure about using Synaptic under Fedora, but you'll want to familiarise yourself with yum. This may be of use to you.
