root user doesnt have permission
Im doing up my little brothers computer so iv put mandrake 10 on as well as his xp. i wanna share some ntfs partitions between the operating systems. iv mounted them and along with the disk xp is installed on they are in /mnt/
as the user i can access and read from the partition xp is installed on only i can see the other two partitions i wanted. but the user has no permissions for these two partitions so i cant see anything in them. as root i can read from these disks fine but for some reason root doesnt have the privilages (isnt allowed to) to change the partitions privilages.
i thought as root i should be able to control everything? do i have to allow root certain privilages somehow?
