Windows partition not read-write under Slackware Linux


I first tried "chmod a+rx" on the mount directory, then tried adding "user" as one of the options in fstab. When the system boots, write and executable permisions are missing for normal users. Help

you will need to add
umask=000 to the options in fstab. Concretely, something like
/dev/hdb2 /mnt/win vfat auto,quiet,umask=000 0 0
will give rw-access to everyone.
