Cool, it's almost exactly a repeat, or it at least appears so. You need to set those permissions in /etc/fstab, or with the -o option from the command line:
/dev/hdx /mnt/windows vfat users,auto,umask=002 0 0

Assuming it's a fat32 partition. From the command line:
mount -t vfat /dev/hdx /mnt/windows -o umask=002
