Here's the new line in fstab:
/dev/hda5 /mnt/hdd vfat defaults,user,uid=500,gid=500 0 0
Thanks for the tip. I did a search in the forum and found what I needed. Did some reading and now I think I understand what the problem was. Thanks again and I guess I have alot to learn but the information is out there...
