Unhappy /fat-c permissions


I mounted two ntfs partitions when I installed Slackware 10.0. How can I access them with a regular user account (non-root)? I have all my mp3z on /fat-d; I love linux; don't make me go back to windows just to here some music. Please help me. /etc/fstab looks like this:

Code:
/dev/hda6        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/hda5        /                ext2        defaults         1   1
/dev/hda1        /fat-c           ntfs        ro               1   0
/dev/hdb1        /fat-d           ntfs        ro               1   0
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
What should it look like?

you need to add the following on the fstab:
.
Code:
/dev/hda1        /fat-c           ntfs        users,umask=000,ro               1   0
They will be public but as far as I know is the only one

I changed the /etc/fstab to:

Code:
/dev/hda6        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
/dev/hda5        /                ext2        defaults         1   1
/dev/hda1        /fat-c           ntfs        users,unmask=000,ro    1   0
/dev/hdb1        /fat-d           ntfs        users,unmask=000,ro    1   0
/dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       iso9660     noauto,owner,ro  0   0
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,owner     0   0
devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0
It does give me access to the directory (/fat-d), but it doesn't show me any of the directories or files that are in it! It says there are 0 files! I changed it back to:

Code:
/dev/hda1        /fat-c           ntfs        ro               1   0
/dev/hdb1        /fat-d           ntfs        ro               1   0
and it shows me all the directories and files but only as root. How do I fix it?

it's umask, not unmask. Try again.
