But can other applications write to the directory? It looks to me from 
another post that you might be using a real Windows partition, so the 
permissions are determined by /etc/fstab. In general, unless required 
for some specific reason, you are probably better off with a "fake" 
partition, and copying over any desired DLLs and fonts.
