Newbie needs to share "My Documents" with Windows

Asked by josephbus1 on 2008-01-23

My PC:
 HDD1 ntfs, XP Pro, data to be shared in C:\My Documents...
 HDD0 ext3, Kubuntu 7.10, data to be shared in path /media/sda1/...My Documents...

Problem: \media folder has root permission only...

When I try :
sudo chown -R user \media

1)terminal responds my pwd input with "unknown pwd"...?!
2)Is there an easier method to get access to shared memory?
Thanks for your advice, Joseph

Thank You sir, 4th (using pysdm pkg) suggestion worked great

P.S. Side question: Man Mount says the ntfs partion will be read only,
yet I am able to write from Gutsy....

Is ntfs writeable from Gutsy ?

Thanks for your answer.
