Hi. I don't have an idea about where to put this question.

I have VL 5.8 SOHO. My harddisk partition contains FAT and NTFS partitions. These two are shared with Windows.
I can take FAT partition with a double click. But when I try to open the NTFS drive, konqueror opens and there shows an error:-

Could not enter folder /mnt/sda8.

The opened konqueror window will be empty.

So I right clicked and selected the actions>Open as root option.
Then it asks root password and then it opens and I can see the files and folders.

In brief, Only root user can access the NTFS drive. Why I can't? Is there anyway to open that with my account?
My songs are in that drive so that I have to run amarok in root mode to play the files. Controlling that root-amarok
is not possible with external remote controlling softwares like super karamba..

How can I correct this? I am a beginner in Linux.

How do you mount you NTFS volume?... with a fstab statement? If so please post your fstab. Are you using ntfs-3g?

In VASM, there is an option to mount partiotions. I used that.
I don't know what is NTFS-3g or any.
What is fstab?

If it is about mounting, then why I can access that with root permission?
