Unhappy only root can access my fat32 and ntfs partitions on Mandrake 9.2

I just move from Mandrake 9.1 to 9.2

On my desktop I have mandrake 9.1 and on my laptop 9.2. The problem is that I can only access my fat32 partition as a root user.

Anyone have any idea?

Please help!

Have you checked fstab ?
It should say "user" on the line of your FAT32 partition
