Using a 200Gb second hard drive so that it can be accessed by Xp Pro

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 with 512Mb Ram, and 80Gb primary hard drive, running Suse 10.0. I can see the 200Gb hard drive, I can even access the files, to play them (by the way this drive is used to store my music files). But I can't as a user, although I can as root, save files to the drive. Plus I can't access the primary drive shares, from windows, I get a message that says words to the effect of, I don't have the rights to do this.

Anybody any thoughts on where I'm going wrong? I have samba running and have shared folders on both the primary and secondary drives.

Thanks for any pointers you can give.
If you need any further info, I'll be glad to give this.

Cheers and a merry Yule to you all

#chown user:user name dir.

User is your username name dir or drive...
(chown=change owner)
You have to do this in a terminal as root..
