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
