Exclamation Access to hard drive in Mandriva 2007

Hi all ! I am new to Linux. I am using Mandriva 2007.
My system is Dual Boot. I have installed Windows Xp on C drive and Linux on D Drive.
I am not able to access my all hard drive as I have logged in as ROOT, but whenever I log in with any other username,my all hard drive is accessible but that is only in read mode.I can not create/edit/del any file on any drive except the Desktop.

Can somebody help me, how can i access my all hard drive in Root Login?
