How to make chmod / chown work with windows Fat 32 partition
Date: 28 Jan 2004 09:47:15 -0800
I have RH9 and WindowsME on my machine. The windows partition is mounted
through an entry in the /etc/fstab like
/dev/hda1 /windows vfat defaults 0 0
Only root can read, write and execute the files in this partition. Other
non-root users can only read or execute.
When I tried chmod to change the permissions for this directory or any
file inside it, it says 'Operation not permitted'. chown also does not work.
Is there any way by which I can make this directory writable for
non-root users? Please help
Thanks in advance
