How do you have your hard drive partitioned? What kind of permissions do you have set for /home and /home/hammam?

You don't want to have any of your linux partitions be FAT32. Linux requires that its resources have security built in to them and that can't happen with FAT32 because of how FAT32 is built. I suspect that, when you made /home a FAT32 partition, your linux responded by making that partition accessible only to root, which is the one and only super user in linux. Try making all of your linux partitions ext3 and be sure to include a swap partition as well. You will probably have to reinstall your linux.
