Permissions on the VFAT partition are controlled by the mount
command, and not the permissions of the mount point. Read the mount
man page for more about this. You will probably want something like
this in /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda1 /data1 vfat
umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,noexec 0 0
