How did you take ownership of the drive on the windows system?. File permission will not stop a computer from booting (at least not on a pc running xp). To answer your question using what ever computer is listed as the owner under disk properties, security, Advanced, owner. Grant permission to the USERS group for read/write permission in the security tab. In windows XP pro any User in the Administrators group can take ownership of any non system folder unless it is explicitly denied in the folder permissions under the security tab. If you have xp home edition reboot into safe mode and log in as the administrator.
