Re: mount permission problems

Hey Bob.

Puzzling one this.  You should cc the group on all mail as athere are
way more skilled players than me.

soemting is very odd here.  As root you can go to / and command rm -rf
/* and watch the whole OS disappear.  So I don't understand why you
 * can't chown the contents of the partition.

Next step:

As root:

mkdir /testdir
chown sue /testdir
mount -t msdos /dev/hda?? /testdir
ls /testdir

You ought to see the contents of /testdir.

chown -R /testdir/*

If this doesn't work, 

chown -R /testdir/* > chownfail.txt
