xchat and mounted partitions


so im using xchat as my irc client and im trying to download to my windows directory mounted on /mnt/windows. i edited my fstab so that the partition has the option uid=1000, which is me. so now i can read and write to it fine, but when i go an xchat and try dowloading something i get an error saying cannot open /mnt/windows/... for writing. i can save to the mounted partition fine, i tried downlading and saving some things from the web and that worked fine. does anyone know if this is a permissions thing or perhaps some sort of xchat setting im overlooking. i couldn't find much info from xchat regarding this so i was wondering if anyone here knew what was going on. thanks in advance

you will want to set a better umask, not mount it as a certain user normally. set umask=000 in fstab too

umask=000 under the options column? i tried that and it didn't seem to do much... i'll have to read up on it. any other ideas? i set the file permissions in xchat to 0777 that should work.... anyway, thanks for the reply.
