Are you mounting the partition using an entry in /etc/fstab, or
mounting it manually? It ether case, you need to specify the
permissions you want as part of the mount command. The defaults will
 give you a file system that only root can write to. Here is what I
use on one of my systems:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat
umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0

Look at "man mount" for information on the options.
