    Debian 3.0

    Ive replaced my windows with Debian 3.0, and so far, its GREAT!

    The only problem I have right now is that I have a couple of NTFS partitions that hold my MP3's and such. I cannot access them as a normal user, despite a lot of effort. How do I Mount NTFS so normal users can browse the contents?

    Just add the umask=0 option in your /etc/fstab file, something like this:

    Code:
    /dev/hdaX  /mountpoint  ntfs  defaults,ro,umask=0   0  0
