chmod for other partitions


Hi!

I have partitions for windows that are displayed as folders in linux. Up to now, only root can write into these folders. I would like to change that so that a normal user is permitted to write in there. What do I have to do for that? The change should apply to the folder (so the partition) and every possible new subfolder in it - because I want to create new subfolders as a normal user.

Thx

you can't change permissions of non-unix filesystems, as they don't understand it. instead you need to mount it with universal permissions. in your /etc/fstab file you would add an option like "umask=000" to allow everyone to read and write to the partition. alternatively make the files owned by someone else using the uid option and giving a user id for a non-root user.
