Unhappy Unable to mount Fat32 partition as readwrite


I'm trying to mount a Fat32 partition in Redhat 9. I can read all of the contents of the drive but can't modify anything.
I have created a directory at /mnt/drive_d and have run chmod 777 on that dir.

I'm currently using the following line in fstab (but I've tried heaps of variations):
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/drive_d auto defaults 0 0

What else could I try?

You have to edit fstab to get write permissions on a FAT32 partition. Use this line:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/drive_d vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,quiet 0 0

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0

This line works for me on a d/b win98/mdk9.1 sys. Try some version of it , modified
for your sys of course.

Thanks!
I used:
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/drive_d vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,quiet 0 0

and it works beautifully.
