enabling a regular user to access windows partitions?


So, I have a FAT32 partition which I have my MP3 stuff on, and I want that a specific user lets name it user1 will be able to get access to it like the root.
this is the part of that partition in /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda7 /home/music vfat defaults 1 0

what do I need to change there? let's assume that the user is named "user1" if that helps.

is the permission of /home/music is correct? otherwise change it

as root

chmod 777 /home/music

Note : 777 - any user can access this mount point.
