- What exact problems are you having, and what (if any) errors do you get?
If you created a folder under /mnt named "fat", and your FAT32 partition really is hda6, then mediaphyte's syntax for the mount command is correct.
In terms of the way rwx permissions work with FAT32 mounts:
The default permissions for a mounted FAT32 volume are rwx for root, but only rx for normal users.
In Linux, permission control works differently for FAT32 and NTFS filesystems than it does for native Linux filesystems (ext2, ext3, reiser, etc.):
1. The UNIX permissions of a directory onto which you mount a Windows filesystem can't be changed while the fileystem is mounted. Unmount the Windows partition; you should then be able to chmod the permissions of /mnt/Windows. You will need to set the appropriate Linux rwx permissions on the /mnt/fat folder and set the permissions for the FAT partition (as described below) in order to grant everyone write access.
2. Windows doesn't support UNIX-style permissions, and you can only apply permissions to the entire filesystem, not to individual Windows files/folders. This is done with the "umask" option of the mount command. In /etc/fstab, change the mount entry for your Windows partition to this:
