[wellylug] accessing vfat partition

I used to have access to a vfat partition from my normal user account,
but this has got broken in the last few weeks, and I'm sure sure how.
The mount directory is /win_d, with permissions 0777.
The line from /etc/fstab is:
/dev/hda5 /win_d vfat defaults,noauto 0 0
When the partition is mounted, the permissions on /win_d change to
drwxr-xr-x, and of course only the root account gets access.
I'm not sure how it got broken, or even that I didn't break it myself. I
did edit fstab to add read-only access to a NTFS partition, and can't be
sure that I didn't absent-mindedly edit the wrong line at some point,
then incorrectly correct it, if you see what I mean.
But I've tried everything that I can think of, or glean from Google, man
mount and man fstab, to no avail. Can anyone help?
