I am VERY new to linux

I have just installed mandrake 9 as a dual boot option on my p.c
I also created a fat drive to act as my document root so the files were available to either w2k and linux.
I have successfully changed the doc root in the apache config for the win2k side of things but when I change the docroot for the nix server it give me a permissions error. I have full permissions for the directory/drive concerned but it will still not give me access via the nix apache server (localhost).
as soon as I change the doc root back everything is fine.

is there a seperate conf file I need to edit ?
and if so how would i do this?

just in case you are wondering.. I do most of my editing in a W2K enviroment but want to do the bulk of my testing in a linix enviroment as it idenifies a lot mor bugs..and can\'t see the point of duplicate files all over the place

any help please.
I Love the sound of Deadlines as the go whoosing past!
