usr needs to be able to read write from /mnt/win98
 
ok I have a mount to a win98 partition from a user point a can see the partition I can open the files but they are read only.
I need to be able to edit these files as well as create files and save them back to that partition.
I can do this from root how can I change the users permission to be able to do that?

I tried to chmod 777 the partition that did not work I tried to add the user to the root group that did not work. Can someone please give me the chown code and can this be done at a directory level or only file level?

thanks

Could you provide the code you used? Also post your /etc/fstab file, as well as the output of 'fdisk -l'.

You can not use the chmod since a FAT32 partition does not use linux permissions.
For read / write add the umask=000 option to the /etc/fstab file line for this partition.

See the man pages for mount and fstab for additional information.

BTW try searching the website first for answers.
