It's your responsibility as the owner of the account to ensure that no sensitive information should be stored in /root in world-readable files. Regardless of the permissions of /root as a directory you can chmod any subdirectory or file to whatever you feel suits your needs. Why then would it be a problem that /root has 0755 permissions? - Giorgos _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
