automounting fat32 drive with correct permissions

- how do you automount a fat32 drive so it doesn't come up as owned by root? (as its fat32 even if you log in as root you can't seem to change the permissions) This is so I don't have to log in as root just to let my windoze machine write to my samba shares on the fat32 drive.

Current fstab line (working, just read only unless u log in as root)

- /dev/hdc1 /archive vfat auto,user,rw 0 0

This is Ubuntu's guide, but it should work for any Linux distro.
