Standard permissions have changed. You'll have to set the umask parameter. 

 /dev/hda5  /dosd   vfat defaults,user,rw,umask=022        0      1

This should restore the behaviour you want. See the manpage of mount for 
further details. Note that you give the permissions you wnat files in the 
mounted filesystem NOT to have.

And could someone please backport fmask/dmask support from the 2.5.x kernels? 

Got Backup?
