I have Linux and Windows installed on the same machine, and have windows set up with 1 partition for windows, and other partitions for programs, documents, sound files etc.

What I want to do is make the extra partitions accessable to all users for read/write access. I've tried modifying /etc/fstab and adding the lines for the partitions (inc. user option), and they mount ok, but show up in ls -l as owned by root, with no write for all. I can remount as a user and have access, but that's not very convenient...

Is there a way to mount so that the mounted partition is accessable to all, or will I have to change permissions/remount on startup (and if that is the case, where do I do that...)?

umount whatever
mount whatever rw
chmod -R 755 /mnt/whatever
