Arrow windows partitions write enable from suse 9.0

I installed suse 9.0, and the windows partitions are mounted,my problem is that I can't write on them even as a root user. I enabled the permissions to write by setting the properties but doesn't work.

If they are ntfs you won't be able to write to it, regardless of permissions. The ntfs driver shipped with suse does not write to ntfs partitions.
You can access ntfs partitions as read-only, so far.
If writing to these partitions is really important to you, you should take a look at the "captive" drivers, for ntfs.

I believe you can have read/write permissions on a FAT16 and FAT32 partitions. You might search for something like "write FAT32" or "write vfat" on these boards.
