generaly, the fat partition is mounting 777.
If not, unmount fat partitio, try to add in/etc/fstab at line for fat : umask=0. mount fat partition.

If the Windows partition is FAT32, then: mount -t vfat /dev/xxx /mnt/somewhere

If the Windows partition is NTFS, then your kernel will need to have NTFS support compiled in, or you can use captive-ntfs. Either way, this is how you mount it: mount -t ntfs /dev/xxx /mnt/somewhere
