how to unlock mounted win-partition for normal users?

Ive mounted my windows partition in suse 9.0, but when i try to access it in konqueror it is blocked for a normal user. How can I unlock it, so that I dont have to be root to open the folder?

Here is an example of a line you've to add/change at /etc/fstab

/dev/hda1	/mnt/win_c	vfat uid=500,gid=500,umask=000,exec,dev,suid,rw 1 0
Assumming that you have a directory called /mnt/win_c and that hda1 is your windows partition. Just change the numbers to fit your needs better.
Remember that you cannot write to NTFS yet. It's safe to do it with FAT32 windows partitions.

Good luck!
