Can't see files in a FAT32 Folder


Hi,

I'm a newbie and just installed Mandrake Linux 9.1. Everything seemed to be alright, but when I accessed my FAT32 drive, it opened fine but there is no file contained in it. I tried to login in as Root and accessed the folder and the files were there.

The question is, what would I do if I would want to show the files contained in FAT32 when I'm logged in as an ordinary user?

Thanks.

In the console do:
df
And
cat /etc/fstab

And post here the output of these commands, so we can help you.

add "user,umask=000" to the options for each vfat mount. should be fine after a remount.

It did work!!! Thanks a lot... but one more, acid_kewpie, how do I remove those mounted disk icons in the desktop? It could be a lot better if it won't show up in the desktop, it would just make my desktop a little bit crowded. Thanks a lot, again.
