Ooh! A question I think I can help with. First try unmounting your fat32, 
change the permissions of the mount point, and then mount it back up again.

If you want this on a more permanent basis, I believe that you need to 
change your /etc/fstab file. 

I think that if you add a rw under the fs-options that the device will be 
mounted with read write permissions at startup. Please correct me if I'm 
wrong on this.

device -	mount -	type -	fs-options -	freq/passno
/dev/hda6	/stuff	vfat	defaults	0 0
