Question write to fat32 partitions in kde2 (graphical)

hi all!
i have linux mandrake 8.1 and win98se installed on the same machine. i mounted win partitions (fat32), now i want to write to these partitions from linux. i can write to these partitions thru Konsole when logged as su. still cannot write thru graphical file managers.

You could change the permissions on the mount in /etc/fstab - but try to keep it somewhat secure...
