    Setting HDD permissions

    I've just about lost all of my sanity trying to allow all users access to my windows drive, and my media drive. Here's what my fstab looks like...

    Code:
    LABEL=/                 /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
    LABEL=/boot             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2
    none                    /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
    none                    /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
    none                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
    none                    /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
    /dev/hda6               swap                    swap    defaults        0 0
    /dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    /dev/cdrom1             /mnt/cdrom1             udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
    /dev/hdb1		/mnt/hdb1		ntfs	auto,user,noexec,rw 0 0
    /dev/hda1		/mnt/windows		ntfs	auto,user,noexec,rw 0 0
    hdb1, and hda1 are the drives I'm trying to set up here.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

    this line may not do it:
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs auto,user,noexec,rw 0 0
    now try using this one:

    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r -o umask=0222


    and this thread may help too.....

    I copied that exact line into my fstab and it didn't work. Is there anything else you can think of?
