Yeah.... I noticed that. If I become root, and chown the mounted floppy to
bob:bob, then on all subsequent mounts of that particular media bob has write access; but ONLY after root intervention. What this means however, is that I can NOT set up a work-station where the user has no root access, and expect that user to effectively use the floppy drive. What a pain! The user can format, mount, and read; but until the media is choned to her/him, by root, they can't write. I didn't have this problem with Linux. What about chowning the permissions on /dev/fd0 to be root:floppyusers,
add a group floppyusers to /etc/group and make bob a member of that group. Chmod 664 /dev/fd0 See if that works. Unfortunately I don't have any machines with floppy drives to test with. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
