I would guess that the driver you need is either non-free in the Debian 
definition or has not yet been included in the official linux kernel for 
other reasons. Debian cannot support such drivers.

Did you select that partition and mountpoint during the installation?
What type of filesystem does the partition have?

If the partition has a linux filesystem (ext3 or so), I would think that 
the permissions depend on what they already were before the install. If 
it is a fat or ntfs [1] partition, you probably need to make some changes 
in /etc/fstab to get the correct permissions.

Thank you!


[1] I'm not really sure if writing to NTFS is fully supported. Google 
should be able to tell you.
