Re: Permissions for mounted NTFS drive

Mark Knights wrote:

I found this thread at Fedora Forums
which suggests I use;

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win1 -t ntfs -r -o umask=0222

in fstab so I tried it out.  It worked like a charm and gave me full
access to the drives.  But, when I reboot it does not remount the drives
and when I go to mount or unmount other things it tells me that the
lines that contain that code contain errors?

Can anyone give me a foolproof way for these drives to be mounted on
startup and allow full access to all users?

Dunno bout a foolproof way to mount your ntfs drives but that line is for command line, not fstab. to get the fstab equivalent:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/win1 ntfs ro,umask=0222 0 0

as a note: the -r in the quoted text means read-only, thus the
ro in the options portion of the fstab entry.
