I created a 10 GB FAT32 partition so I could access files in both Windows XP and SUSE (KDE), along with any other Linux distros I decide to try out. However, I have read-only access to the partition, so I tried to fix it. I opened Konsole and typed su, then pressed enter and typed my password, and then I typed Konqueror to open it in superuser mode. I then navigated to the partition, right-clicked it then clicked Properties, and went to the Permission tab. I changed everything to "Can View and Modify Content", checked the box to apply the changes to all subfolders/files, and clicked OK. However, it didn't work, so does anybody know how you are supposed to do it?
Edit: I'll just post the solution here since there have been a lot of views.
Open fstab by opening Konsole and type:
sudo kWrite /etc/fstab
then type your superuser password.
Here is the code in my fstab:
/dev/hdb2 /shared vfat rw,users,gid=users,umask=0002,uid=1000,utf8=true,exec,dev,auto 0 0
rw means read/write access to it, users and gid=users make the partition belong to the group "users", uid=1000 gives ownership of the partition to the user with the ID 1000, and for more information, see here
