NTFS mounting troubles

I read the only thread on NTFS I could find (http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php? … f2f76f1080). I altered my fstab to give permission for all users to mount, which works to an extent (if I only do 'mount /dev/hda1', otherwise I get a root permission error for

mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows 

The added line in fstab is here

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,user,noauto,defaults 0      0

However, if I mount with a regular user using 'mount /dev/hda1' I still get a permission error when attempting to access the folder. And yes, I set permissions for the folder so that all users have read permission to it- this doesn't seem to make a difference.

Any ideas on this, im stumped.

Re: NTFS mounting troubles

Try adding umask=0022 to the options.

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,user,noauto,defaults,umask=0022 0 0
