Unhappy Another Newbie with Konsole problems

Hi All you clever guys,
I am having some real problems with using Konsole. I started by trying to mount my Windows partition to get access to mail and fonts, by inserting "/dev/hda1 /mnt/c vfat auto,user 0 0" into /etc/fstab, but the Advanced Editor won't let me save the changed text.
I thought that root could do anything but when I try with Terminal Super User Mode, click 'File' then 'Midnight Commander', the MC window opens, I enter my root password, the MC window closes, and Konsole reopens! If I try using Root Konsole for the changes, I enter /etc/fstab and I get "bash: /etc/fstab : permission denied"
No way can I open MC.
Could anyone tell me how to a: modify /etc/fstab b: the correct entry to make to mount hda1?

Hi rogleale

Open Konsole then type "su"
It will ask for ur password so type it in
Now open fstab with ur editor
and add ur lines then save
it should work

the bash problem is because ur just typin "/etc/fstab"
type "vim /etc/fstab"

then edit ur file

or type 'pico /etc/fstab'

pico is ALOT easier to use and get to know.
