Be careful there, members of the 'disk' group can do nasty things on
your debian box too.  Perhaps create a new group who can access the
windows partition, put those users into the group, then use the gid=
parameter in fstab.  However, this doesn't affect the uid.  I can't test
this further since I haven't run windows since 3.1 and never played with
