External Storage problem


I just install mandrake 10 everything is ok but i have a external usb drive.

It recognize it but mount it as "vext" or something format and it actually is has NTFS format. So I can "access" it but can't see anything.

I tried mounting it as NTFS as root user using a console with

mount -t ntfs -r /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part1 /mnt/extdrive
and i can access and see everything as root.

When i get bak to normal user I just can't access (not enough privileges).

I tried to change the owner, group y privileges for the mounted folder and nothing works

So there are two problems

- How to access the mounted drive as a normal user &

- How to mount it always as NTFS ('cause after a reboot it mount the external drive as it wants (no NTFS))
