give users permissions to write

I have install fedora2, and I have the folowing partitions:
hda1 - XP(ntfs)
hda2 - shared for fedora & XP (fat32)
hda3 - fedora
and a swap partition

I've tried all solutions I know to get write permissions to hda2 as user but it didn't work. As a root it work fine. Also as a user I can't write CDs. hda2 is mounted in "/mnt" as "e". Please help.
In my fstab I have:
/dev/hda2/ /mnt/e vfat users 0 0
I can read from hda2 as user but I can't write.

Try this in your /etc/fstab
/dev/hda2               /mnt/e            vfat    umask=000,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,users        0 0
Hope it helped!

EDIT: Hola Romania

thanks anyway!
but I resolved the problem with the following entry in fstab:

/dev/hda2 /mnt/e vfat gid=#, mode=777

In your command what does umask=000?
