Same problem... Kinda

i have this guys same problem.... I'm new to linux too.
i got my drive mounted and can read it but not write....
when i try and change permissions get his same error "Changing the attributes of files not supported...."
Thing is though I'm using Fat32 not ntfs, but i do have another partition on the same disk that is ntfs
could this be the problem???
Is there a way around it??

Thanx, Michael

Btw heres my fstab:
/dev/hda2 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/sda1 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
/dev/hda1 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0
/dev/sda2 /Win vfat acl,user_xattr 0 0
^^^^^^^^^
i changed -------------------------------------^^^^^^^^^---- to what my default linux partition was set to (top), on the sole basis that it worked, but to no avail

Got it to work...... Kinda :)

i went into the partitioner system utility and made it so it didnt mount at boot,
mounted manually after setting folder permissions and it worked fine,
so now i just need to know how to make it mount at boot and still work........

after manual mount worked, i tried this
/dev/hda2 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/sda1 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
/dev/hda1 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0
/dev/sda2 /Win vfat wr,users,umask=777
but once again, to no avail,

Hope'n for a response, Michael

P.S. how can i force include spaces in these post?

ext3 is a journaling file system. It can recover much quicker if your system is not shut down properly.
There are many fs to choose from. I use reiserfs here also journaling.

as you can see in your fstab, there are several file systems
iso9660 ist a CD file system
ntfs stands for windows NT file system and is used by default by WinNT, Win2000, and Win XP. from within linux you can only read it (though I heard about some software to enable writing...)
etx2, ext3, reiserfs alre linux specific filesystems.

details about ext2, ext3, etc -> literature on the web & books.

as to changing from ntfs to ext?/reiserfs: the gurus here will tell you more. I have only Windoze here (company) and don't know by heart how to format the HD.
I hope my explanations answer your general question so the gurus can concentrate on helping you with the technical reformatting stuff
