I have installed Ubuntu 7.10 on  a drive that also contains a fat32 partition on which I have data to share with Linux and Windows computers. Presently the properties indicate unknown owner and group. The permissions do not aloow read/write or create files for anyone. I cannot change either the ownership or permissions.
