problems while accessing drives that are already mounted


i have a dual boot mandriva linux with windows xp.there are 3 partitions of my drive(ntfs) and all have already been mounted.but when i access these i am getting the error message

"an error occured while accessing 'volume ntfs',the system respondedrg.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDenied
org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always<--action,result)"

i have done this by GUI alone and havent tried CLI

How did you mount the partitions? The message you've received (that HAL returned "PermissionDenied") is typically generated when the partition is mounted by "root" without the -o defaults options set.

Here's what my NTFS access lines in my /etc/fstab look like:
Code:
$ grep ntfs /etc/fstab
UUID=342D7D7923AC4107   /Vista                  ntfs-3g rw,defaults     0 0
UUID=2C88743C8874071C   /Vista/Recovery         ntfs-3g rw,defaults     0 0
UUID=5B1D63E8395D1623   /Temp                   ntfs-3g rw,defaults,noauto 0 0
(FYI: The UUID for a partition should be displayed if you enter a ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid command in a terminal window. I prefer to mount partitions by UUID since that value isn't changed when I change the disk cabling or add a partition.)

Note: I'm not a Mandriva user, so these comments a "typical" of Linux systems, not Mandriva-specific.
