What is the drive formatted in currently? NTFS or something else? Your post is a bit unclear in that point. And what do you mean with changing permissions? Is the drive read-only and you want to rectify that?

It's *GOING* to be read-only, on a standard base install. No expections. Afaik, you can recompile the kernel to enable writing, but don't quote me on that.

Okay. AFAIK, Ubuntu is only able to mount NTFS drives read-only out of the box. Try to install ntfs-3g (search for it in Synaptic if you don't want to use the command line) and look up on how to mount a drive in read-write mode after that.

For future reference, the latest version of Ubuntu (7.10) includes native NTFS read/write support. I believe if you upgrade from 7.04, you will be asked to remove any manually-installed versions of ntfs-3g.
