I've gone fully Linux in the last couple of months. I decided I was tired of dealing with Windows.

The way my computer is set up:

hda1 = root partition (about 3gig)
hda2 = swap partition
hdb = FAT32 drive that resides in /data (I have a lot of stuff on there that I couldn't bear to get rid of)

My question is... How do I set the user permissions so my everyday account can access /data (/dev/hdb)?

Assuming your data partition is /dev/hdb1 you will need to add a line to the /etc/fstab

/dev/hdb1 /data fat32 user,umask=000 0 0

For more information see man pages for mount and fstab.
