Can only access Windows partition through root


I created a folder in the /mnt directory called windows. I then edited the fstab with the added line:
Code:
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows auto user,defaults 0 0
Everything works fine under root but I can't access through my user. It claims I don't have permission. I've tried changing permissions to viewable by groups but I get this error:
Code:
Changing the attributes of files is not supported with protocol devices
Any suggestions?

mlsbraves, replace auto with your windows filesystem (ntfs or vfat) because otherwise mount can't set the permissions on it.

This should help me restrict which groups have access to it. Thank you

Also one more thanks to heema for the link. You have all been helpful
