rw access to Fat32 partitions in Linux

By iamsanchez ·
Running Red Hat Linux 7.3.
Have a pyro 1394 firewire host adapter.
Have a maxtor 3000XT 160GB hard drive attached to this firewire card.
Have mounted the drive as vfat.I'm able to see it and to write to it as root.

How do I allow other users to read and to write to this drive?

So far there seems to be some limitations with the firewire interface under linux. Is this because the drives are IDE. I have used 180GB scsi hard drive and have not had any problems under linux.

Is there someone out there that have some info about this technology and would be willing to share it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

The simplest method is to update the permissions of the /dev/ entries that correspond to the drive
eg, /dev/hda1 rwx------ change to rwxrw-rw-
