ntfs partition permission problem


Hi,
I am new to linux, and using Redhat 9. I have 2 hds, one with winXP and the master boot record, and another with all the linux partitions, and another ntfs partition. I installed the rpm for ntfs access, edited fstab, and everything works perfectly under root. When I try to access the folder where the mount point for the drive is under my normal username, it tells me the folder is locked. When using KDE under root, i try to change permissions for the folder, it won't let me. How do I make it so that all users can get at the ntfs partition??

Try adding

users,ro,umask=000

to the relevant /etc/fstab line

No permissions

I've been looking for over an hour now for an answer to this. When I login to a directory on my website that is a symlink to my NTFS mounted directory I get the following message:
.
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /mp3/ on this server.
.
My /etc/fstab currently looks like this:
.
/dev/sda1 /mnt/firewire ntfs users,ro,umask=000 0 0
.
I want all users in the world to be able to access the files on this drive. What do I do?
.
mb
