lock pad appear when I make change in folder

why when I rename a file or folder in a fat32 partition a pad lock appear on it? Does that mean the change cannot be made? I'm using Mnadriva 2006.

You probably have mounted the FAT32 partition as read only, OR your current user does not have write permissions for that partition.
