Alright then, I guess I will just continue to use chmod. I have most everything copied over from the "Dark Side" anyway, and after this last bug with windoze I don't think the machine will booted up to the windoze side again.

Thanks for all your help!

Ok, good luck! And I'm glad to hear you are choosing the right side of the Force to Join Luke :D

Cool

Hi all,

here is my fstab file. I mount NTFS partition in READ mode with no problem at all. Hope this can help.

/dev/hda5 /mnt/ntfs ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0

OK, now I get "permission denied" when trying to move to /mnt/windows as a regular user. it has:
dr-xr-x--- 1 root root 12288 Aug 13 18:01 windows/

any ideas?
One idea is simply to use your User ID number as one of the mount options in the 4th field - it gives you complete Ownership of the files and directories on your mounted partition - in coordination with a suitable umask value it normally does the trick.

In general - to get your uid number -

Open a command line shell - type

id username

(substitute username with whatever yours is)

Look for the

uid=xxx

Thats your username.

Thanks for that -- I've been yelling at RH9 for hours trying to get Samba and Win2K working, reading piles of documentation, oodles of web pages, tons of threads, etc...

and my workaround didn't work until this. Thanks again.
