NTFS -> FAT32 mounting help


I just changed my Windows D: drive from NTFS to Fat32 so that I can access it better from Linux. I have two questions now. How do I mount this newly partioned drive in Slackware so that I can use it and how do I remove (or perhaps do I need to just rename) the old /ntfs-d folder that now has nothing in it?

To remove the /ntfs-d folder, just use the command "rm -rf /ntfs-d". If you get Permission Denied, log in as root.

To mount the FAT32 drive enter "/dev/hdc1 /fat32 vfat defaults,rw,uid=1000 0 0". Where "/dev/hdc1" is the location of the FAT32 HDD, where "/fat32" is your precreated destination of the mount, and where "uid=1000" is your userid, The "uid=1000" allows your user to access this drive instead of just the root user, which most people like to do.

As root I created the directory /fat32-d and then typed

"dev/hda5 /fat32-d vfat defaults,rw,uid=1000 0 0"

and I got a "dev/hda5 Permision denied" message.

I double checked and my fat32 drive is hda5

How do I check my user id? Could this be the problem?

Sorry, I didn't type exactly what I wanted. Enter that "/dev/hdc1 /fat32 vfat defaults,rw,uid=1000 0 0" command into the fstab. You can do this by opening up a terminal and typing vi /etc/fstab as root.

I'm sorry I didn't include this in the first post, I somehow forgot to mention it.

there are 2 interesting options too:
user
Allow an ordinary user to mount the file system. The name of the mounting user is written to mtab so that he can unmount the file system again. This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line user,exec,dev,suid).
users
Allow every user to mount and unmount the file system. This option implies the options noexec, nosuid, and nodev (unless overridden by subsequent options, as in the option line users,exec,dev,suid).
