    NTFS Partition Permissions

    I have my NTFS partition mounted, but only root has access, i need to have access to the partition as user, here is what my current fstab looks like

    /dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
    /dev/hda1 /winxp ntfs ro 1 0
    none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    none /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 user,ro,noauto 0 0

    what do i need to change in order to get access as user,

    Thank You

    hello,
    try adding the word user next to the ro
    e.g.

    /dev/hda1 /winxp ntfs ro,user 1 0

    As you mentioned over at lno, you probably need to add 'umask=???'.

    I'm not sure what the the umask values should be, but if you search the forums at lno, you should be able to find examples. I have seen threads there on the very subject.

    try umask=022 ... now every user should be able to read (write ) on the partition

    Linux has no NTFS write support yet.

    it has write support but its not stable yet and could trash your ntfs partition

    from the linux-ntfs FAQ
    mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows -t ntfs -r

    "-r" means read-only. The write support in the NTFS driver isn't complete and using it will very likely destroy all your data.
    ouch.
