Hardrive Trouble with hdb

I've a second hardrive installed formatted as FAT32. I am having trouble allowing any access at all to it by anyone but root. I wish to be able to read and write to it as any user, just a second hard drive.

This is the /etc/fstab:
dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb1 /fat-c vfat user 1 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,user 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

This is the line pertaining to this directory with ls -l from /:
drwxr--r-- 6 root root 4096 Dec 31 1969 fat-c/

I did that, access to /fat-c is still denied, anything else I could check? I've tried using chown/chgrp and was unable, access denied.
