Angry chmod "operation not supported" ntfs


Having one hell of a time getting this to work, here's my situation

running FC4 x64 - trying to access my mp3s and such from sda1 - sda1 is a ntfs windows drive

what i've done:
edited my fstab to allows sda1 mount auto with user set, (i can see the drive in "computer")

but i cannot access it with my regular user, root has no problem.... so.....

tried chmod -R 777 *
fine ok now im allowed in the directories but can't access any files......

This is where i am stuck..... doens't make any sense to me but im just a noob... (when it come to linux atleast :P)

Thanks for any help regarding this issue

NTFS is not a UNIX compliant filesystem, as such you can not change permissions on files on it. instead you'd normally set pseudo-permissions on mount for every file at once: mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /mnt/pants -o umask=222 to allow everyone full read access.
