fat mounted drives not accessable as user


After much bitching and moaning at my console, still no luck and im even more clueless than before.

im using Slack 9 with fluxbox, when i try access my fat drives under /mnt/, it wont give me access to see whats in them *permission denied* , i can see it perfectly as root or using su, i've tried changing the permissions but it just stalls. what now..? why does it stall? why is the sky blue#!@#%!

add "user" to that harddrive's settings in your /etc/fstab. If "Owner" is there, remove it.

Search the forums.

You should also try adding "umask=000"
