The problem is more than likely in how the windows shares are mounted when you
are booted into KUbuntu. More than likely only root has access to the
non-native windows volumes you are mounting. I wish off the top of my head I
knew how to change this, but the best I could do was edit my fstab as
follows: (NOTE: /dev/hda1 is my windows partitions):
/dev/hda1 /winxp vfat defaults,utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 0
Putting this in your fstab may not be the best way to do it and I may be WAY
off on answering your question, but I hope I'm helping some. However, I do
think that sharing the Windows partitions can be done via SAMBA, unless maybe
they're NTFS, then I'm not sure.
