Oddly, if I make the directories /dosd and /dosc change the owner to admin:wheel and update my fstab I can access those as my user (admin) but not when fstab is as quoted above ie under /mnt? I dont get this as I have often used /mnt/dos type scheme in the past? It seems as though /mnt has some special property? Perhaps I need to go back to basics of chmod in symbolic mode? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
