Setting account access rights

OK hopefully you can help me.

I have installed Mandrake 10. I want to access my files on a 80gb fat32 hard drive. I have mounted the drive and can see it and have access to all of the files when logged in as the root account. But when i try to access it via the normal user account i get an error message saying permission denied while trying to acces /mnt/hdg Any clues.

I have tried setting the mount point to the home directory of my normal account and still get the same message. it seems that i can only access the /home account on the PC and not the /mnt directory.

And welcome to LQ!

May I introduce you to the search?

That question has been asked and answered a
thousand times (or so it seems to me) ...

Try using "user fstab umask FAT32" as the search
terms ...
