mounting ntfs partitions as a user in suse8.2


hi guys in suse8.0 i log as a user and created 2 dirs /anubis /osiris , then i mounted them as a user and read only.
i had /horus on a fat32 part and mounted as read write.
now on suse8.2 I cant, i did not upgrade I did a fresh install so the question is
how can I have the same thing now.
hda1 ntfs readonly and mount as user
hdb1 vfat readwrite and mount as user
hdd1 ntfs readonly and mount as user

I dont remember well about chmod chown so any help is very much welcome.

thanks guys!
its a shame because 4 years ago i would of done it , but I got to dumb on using graphical interfaces.

First of all, you will need NTFS support.
If you do not know if NTFS support is present, type the following command and take a look at the output.
Code:
more /proc/filesystems
You will need to add an entry for each HDD in your /etc/fstab
The lines should look something like this:
Code:
/dev/hdaX               /mnt/windows98          vfat    defaults,user        0 0
/dev/hdaX               /mnt/windowsXP          ntfs    defaults,user,ro        0 0
Note
NTFS support is Read-Only.
Do NOT write to NTFS from Linux.
It may corrupt your NTFS filesystem.

You can't use chmod or chown to change permissions because they're Windows partitions. Add "umask=0" next to the options "defaults,user" and "defaults,user,ro" to set their default permissions to rwxrwxrwx

A typical line for mounting NTFS automatically on boot-up...

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windowsXP ntfs auto,ro,umask=0222 0 0

If you post your '/etc/fstab' then someone can tell what changes to make.

The key to making a partition user mountable is too have the option 'users' in the list of options in the fstab entry for the partition.
