Question Captive-ntfs: Operation not permitted

He guys!

I have a problem with my captive-ntfs. I try to mount my ntfs-partition in a true rw-mode. And I am talking serious stuff: All files must have 777 permission. I know that ist orks because I've done it before. But I can't make it work now.

What I did:
1) Installed captive-ntfs
2) made entry in fstab

I think I remember that I had to copy some original driver files from my WIndowsXP into the captive-directory. But I don't remember which files. Any ideas?

After that I tried to change permissions by using: "chmod 777 <filename>"
The answer from my system was:
changing permissions of "filename" (requested: 0777, actual: 0644): Operation not permitted

I think it is because the drivers and the entry in fstab. How does the the entgry in the fstab exactly has to look like if I want to mount my ntfs partition with full rw rights for all users?

Thx in advance
