Read Only File System

I'm running Puppy Linux on an old PC trying to get at some files on the hard drive. (Windows has crashed.) I can see the hard drive and when I try to copy a file to an external drive I get an error that the file system is read only.

When the external drive mounts, I get a message about it - NTSF mounted read only. How can I get the external drive to allow writes?

you should be able to right click it and change the permissions.

Thanks, but that didn't work. However, I was able to run a mount command from the console to get it to work.

But maybe you can help me with something else. I needed to do the same process on another PC and when Puppy was coming up I got a message that said it "can't access tty; Job control turned off". I think I need to set some option at init time by going into PF2 and typing some command, but I don't know what it is. Then I need to get back into the initialization routine.
