NTFS and gnutella

i have mounted an NTFS drive in RH9
but i would like to share these files in gnutella .... how can i set the permission so my normal user mode can access without being root?

ive tried mount -o user,rw /device /place

but this didnt seem to do anything other than mount the device as before

any ideas?

Well you could change permissions on the dir:

#chown -R kane /device/place
#chgrp -R kane /device/place

this will (-R)ecursively CHange the OWNer and GRouP of "place" and any directory below it, but you may need to change those permissions at the top...say @ /device
