I'm running FC5 and gnome on a machine dual booting with Windows
would like to read from/write to a Windows vfat partition. I've added
this line to /etc/fstab:
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/win vfat rw,noatime,uid=500,gid=500,user 0 0
Then, also as root:
chmod 777 /mnt/win
I believe that 755 is good enough. The mount point itself does not
need to be writable.
In linux, I can now read from the /mnt/win directory but can't
it without root privileges. How should I set the privileges on this
directory so that I can write to it as a user? Are the mount parameters
in fstab correct?
Thanks for the help! --Jerry
Are you mounting as a normal user, or as root?
I'd say you were not uid 500 or gid 500. What are your uid and gid?

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
