How to give permissions for users.......


I have mounted windows partitions.. and how to give permissions to users to be able to write into the partitions...

My /etc/fstab file is...
/dev/sda1 /mnt/winc vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/sda5 /mnt/wind vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/sda6 /mnt/wine vfat defaults 0 0
/dev/sda7 /mnt/winf vfat defaults 0 0

Thanx in anticipation.
