HD access problems

I’m set up right now with a dual boot system (Suse 11/Win XP) and I have an extra HD for storage.
When I’ve had other distros everything showed up as diferent HD’s but when I put SUSE in for the first time it put my XP partition and my storage drive under /Windows/C and /Windows/D. I’m not a fan of this, I’d much prefer if they showed up as different drives instead. What is also bothering me right now is that those folders don’t allow me full access unless I’m root. It’s annoying because I’d like to have full permissions when manipulating files by GUI. If I go into >properties>permissions it says on the bottom "you are not the owner, so you can’t change these permissions.

I guess I’d like to change the permissions but what I would like more is to be able to change these “folders” to be seen as HD’s without access problems.

Use super user file manager and post contents of /etc/fstab

Also, you will want to take note for future. During install it is better if you manually set mount points for all partitions you want to see and access from suse.

Don’t worry it’s easy to sort out your current problem
