first of all you probably want to ask this question on either/
both the qgis-users and grass-users mailing lists at
http://lists.osgeo.org, not here.

In order to support sane multi-user workflow, UNIX versions
of GRASS require that your user account owns the mapset you
wish to open *in the filesystem*. You can read from other
peoples mapsets (who've given you filesystem read permission
and not switched if off with g.access), but you can only write
to your own.

I don't know if that's your problem here, but it's something
to look out for. (FAT32 partitions have no concept of ownership,
you have to mount it with -o uid=[your user ID number from

good luck,
