You could add your windows partition to /etc/fstab, do 'man fstab' or look at the file itself for details. Make sure you use a windows filesystem type (vfat or ntfs probably).

Permissions? It is so long since I've mounted a Windows partition that I can't remember how they're handled. Maybe try 'chown' and 'chmod' to set the permissions you want. I don't think Windows knows or cares about file permissions.

you must add:

/de/<dev> /mnt/win vfat defaults, umask=000 1 0

to your fstab file (in /etc)

you must put in <dev> your windows partition and if is not vfat you should put the filesystem that applies.

Like win does not have files permissions (fat32) you can give permissions to a user for that files (i think) so "umask=000" let all the users have acces to the data.

/dev/hda6  /Stuff   vfat   defaults,owner,users,exec,rw
this is my windows partition, and if you use "ro" instead
of "rw", your users only have "read" access.
