Access a vfat mounted partition


I've got two HD's. one with windows, and the other with slack. I have windows mounted so I can get music from that drive, but I can only access it as root. I would like to log in under soemthing besides root to listen to music. I've tried chmod'ing it, and chown'ign it, but that didnt work, I cant change ownership, it wont let me. so any ideas??

thanks

Try adding a mount line to your /etc/fstab similar to something below for the partition.

/dev/hda2 /mnt/hda2 vfat defaults,umask=000 1 0

Change the device to what you need for your partition and mount point as desired. The key bit here is the umask=000 part. That will allow full access to everybody. If the file system is currently mounted it will need to be unmounted and remounted for the change to take effect.
