you'll need to set the permissions in /etc/fstab using the option "umask=000". this does of course cripple the security of the drive, but there's little you can do.

and how about not saying "plz"? it's spelt "please"...

What does your line look like now? Here's mine, this should answer your question:

/dev/hdb6 /mnt/fat32 vfat users,auto,rw,umask=000 1 0

It replaces the default if that's what you have there. To find out more options read man mount.

Cool

No, you should be fine.
Do change that to umask though, not unmask.

rw, maybe, but you will probably be ok with your umask rather.

Cool

No, don't change to "not unmask" but rather from unmask to umask. Notice the lack of N in the one you should use.

You could copy mine as it works fine for all users

Cool
