OK... unless I am sadly mistaken (and that is always a possibility), the 'ro' you have in the above line is mounting the filesystem READ-ONLY.

I think you can simply remove 'ro'. Try it.

Sorry for the "stupid question"

Yes thats true ro means read-only i just figured out when i tried to cp something in console not in konqueror. As usual console gives much specific info when everything is not fine. Thanks for your replys. This thread is happily over.
