external drive permissions

Well, today I finally brought home my external drive and plugged in the usb. Ubuntu saw it no problem, but told me I couldn't do anything with my ext3 partition due to lack of permissions.

HMMM ... again back to the ubuntu forum LOL

I saw a post saying:
You have to change the permissions of the mount point, /media/XXXXX, with the chmod command. OK, let's try it.

sudo chmod 777 /media/XXXXX/

I typed it in a terminal window and low and behold ... I now have permissions.

FUN FUN FUN .... wooo hooo

laters folks
