Well, there it is. I think users who want to write to this filesystem need to have write permission on the mountpoint. How about creating a group, perhaps "users", of which all users are members, then chown root:users /mydos, then chmod 775 /mydos

OK, I've scoured the archives for an answer with no results. I'm sharing a FAT32 partition between XP and 6.2 Release. The problem is I can mount the drive but only root can write to it (users can just read). I have the following in fstab:

/dev/asd42        /mydos        msdosfs     rw  0 0

I've tried adding the -u or -g option with no luck. I understand that since FAT has no inherent permissions chmod has no effect either (tried it just to be sure) so it must be set from fstab. Any help?

What are the owner and permissions on the mount point  (/mydos)?
