I need another kind of advice. During the standard installation on ppc I created beside the root-partition (on which there's also /home) another 30-Gig-vfat-partition to exchange data with MacOS. MacOS does not seem 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.


Thanks, I tried this:

/dev/hda7 /emporion vfat umask=0755,uid=bjosch 0 2

But I don't see any change:

Aemilia:/home/bjosch# ls -ld /emporion
d----w--w-  2 bjosch root 16384 1970-01-01 01:00 /emporion

Is there an error? Do I have to left "defaults"-value? gid should not be absolutely necessary, chould it?
