write permission when automount usb ntfs drives

I want to get all permissions for all the users when ntfs usb drives is detected and linux mount it automatically. Linux grants permission only for root and it canīt be changed.

I use vfat (still!) for reasons of compatibility on my usb drives. For users, put a line in /etc/fstab for whatever drive you expect to be used. Mount options should contain the option 'user' or 'users' (man fstab for the difference). Use ntfs-3g as the filesystem (My preference) as it seems to work better from an end user's POV.
