Whax on hdd

Heya, been trying to install Whax 3.0 onto the hdd (/dev/hdc) but it seems to be mounted as read only. I've had a fair time off linux so I cant really remember how to remount it as read+write.

Any help is appreciated.

Log in as root.

All members of the Slax family can allow a root user to read write every partition, including ntfs.

You can control access privs with the '-o umask=xxx' option

Yeah, done all this through root. When I go install Whax onto the hdd it only allows me to select a source for the install, no destination. I figured it might be because it's mounted as read-only.
