read only partition


hi, i have succesfull mount my fat32 partition in my mnt directory, and add a line into a file to be able to auto mount this partition at start up, but i have a problem, when i try to change something, linux always answer me that its a read only partition, why? what can i do to be able to rename, cut, delete, write,... on this partition like i do when im in windows... !?

thx a lot

if you have mounted it correctl, you may need to change permissions
there are many topics on this, search the forums
or read the chmod man page... "man chmod"
