User permissions

Hello there.
This is strange to me because never before has happened.

Recently I reinstalled Arch, created my user, but I was uncertain about access to what groups give him, because there has been a long time thought tongue

I put him  into wheel and audio, however, I dont remember that ANY group were necessary to access a unit, because Im still unable to enter my two NTFS partitions. It denies me the permission.

Its really freaking me out. I tried a couple of stuffs, but without success.

Help please.

P.D.: Is there anyway to know exactly what allows me every group of the /etc/group file?

This generally has to do with the way it is mounted.
What does your /etc/fstab look like?

Something like this should suffice:

/dev/hda1   /mnt/ntfs   ntfs   umask=0222    1   0

/path/to/Truth

That is all described in the man file.
$ man fstab
