second hd permissions


i am having problems writing to my second hd. under su i change the umask to 0000 and then i mkdir /mnt/fat32 then i mount /dev/hdd1 /mnt/fat32 then check to make sure the umask is still 0000 cause it likes to change on me. then i go back to my user and try to cp file1 /mnt/fat32 and it says permissions denied. i tried chown and it wont let me do that cause it is a mounted thing. then i tried chmod and it says operation not permitted even though i am running as a su. any ideas as to what could be the problem here?

in your /etc/fstab create an entry for the partition:
Code:
/dev/hdd1    /mnt/fat32    vfat    defaults,umask=000  0 0
