Fedora 16 USB HDD permission

Hi,

I've just installed Fedora 16 after having FC11 for 3 years or so. What I noticed is that my USB media is connected and accessible, but it's impossible to change permissions (using FAT32 and NTFS volumes) and it is given 'rw' only for the owner, so it is impossible to execute linux applications on that volume or scripts.

I would really appreciate your help. Reading through the internet for the last 5 hours didn't yield much and the user interface tools don't match.

Thanks, Moti.
