only root can access ntfsdrive. plz help, i've read previous posts...
ok i just installed mandrake 9.1 -dualboot-and am able to view (and execute) files on my ntfs winxp partition with root user, but not regular users. i followed advice on previous posts, but nothing is working. i tried chmod and that is apparently wrong????
this is the entry for the drive currently in fstab:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs umask=007,users,exec,dev,suid,ro,iocharset=iso8859-1 0 0
another post said to use umask=007, i'm not sure but i think think this makes sense, b/c it would set rwe permissions for everybody?
it also suggested adding "gid=X" and "uid=X" entries, should I try this? how do i figure out the value for each?
thanx for any help you guys can give me
