Windoze (heavy on the doze) drive..

What I do is give myself permission to acces my windows partition with all rights. I put this line into /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat defaults,uid=mathi 1 0

Where /dev/hda1 is my windows partition, /mnt/windows its mount point, and mathi my login name. (sorry for the obvious)
