Re: permission on partition

I need another kind of advice. During the standard installation on ppc I

to be able to recognize it. But at least I'd like to be able to use it
from Linux. Only as root I can access it, read and write. But even as
root I am not able to change the permissions, why??
I believed, defaults might be enough as value. Am I wrong with this?
the vfat filesystem doesn't have permissions. All you can do is set the
permissions for the whole filesystem (see the manual page of mount,
there is a section on the fat filesystem), IIRC you have to use the uid
and gid options.
