Unhappy Cant write to Dos partition in LE

Since installing LE i have been unable to write to
DOS partitions. Just get an ACCESS DENIED error.
Reading files is no problem

Have tried changing permissions but to no avail however
i had no problem with 10.1

Any ideas, thanks.

mount the DOS partition with the parameter umask=000
for example:
mount -t vfat -o umask=000 /dev/hda1 /mnt/winc
