external disk and permissions

Is it an NTFS fomatted disk? If so, you'll need to search synaptic or
adept for NTFS-3G and ntfs-config and install them.
You'll then need to configure it.
I think (although I use gnome here) you can open a konsole window and
$ sudo ntfs-config
Enter you password and a window will open.
You can then put a tick in the box for external drives and you should
then have "write access".
