I am having major problems with linux. I cant get samba to share my printer. wine wont work but right now i am having a major problem with permissions and stuff like that. I want to play a cd in regular user but it wont let me cuz it says that i dont have access to the cd player. i dont know where to enable it so i can use it in a non-root user. Next, i have mounted my other HHD Windows 2000. I can view everything from the root user but i want to be able to use it from a non-root user. I am very confused . this was my biggest doubt about linux because i could never figure out the rights and permissions to everything.
PS if anyone knows anything about Wine please help me. I have installed it but i dont know how to use it. I have read the docs and that has just confused me more. thanks for all the help

Wynbloz NT is an NTFS files system you will not be able to change the file system permissions. They are read only.. You can prove read/write access to NTFS partitions by compiling write ability for NTFS file system in the kernal. WARNING on doing that, you run the risk of damaging the file system if you do that.
