Unable to copy to FAT32 with Knoppix

Hi, I am trying to get knoppix to write to  FAT32 drive (windows 98). Knoppix is running from the CD and I have set full read/write access before mounting drive, however Knoppix is unable to write to any of the drives in this system.

I am trialling Knoppix as a troubleshooting boot cd. I have also looked at BartPE and UBCD but I am not sure which applications should be used to copy data to an external drive.

Thank you in advance.

You have to set the full read/write access after mounting, by right clicking the icon of the mounted partition, you get the appropriate menu, and here you can change that setting.

Thank you Rindi. It seams that for some reason I must enable full write access, unmount then remount and then it works perfectly. Knoppix is superb!
