I am trying to access a Network based NTFS Hard disk via TERMINAL as i need to set permissions on folders on it. I can see it in "files" but I cannot set permissions via that applilcation as "permissions cannot be determined" So I need to do this via Terminal I assume Do I have to place an entry in fstab file or is there a way of mounting it directly in terminal? If so, do I use the share name? i.e. Disk name/share name

Sorry if these are real Newbie questions but we all started somewhere.. thanks for the help in advance

You aren't getting an NTFS disk over the network. It's probably a CIFS volume - the filesystem on disk and method of sharing that filesystem are different. If you can access those files, you already have the access possible for that disk. The transport method (ie CIFS or samba, over the network) may not provide that functionality. Just a guess though - you didn't say where the volume was coming from or how it was being served.
