Apologies for the sarcasim.
When the drive with the dick-owned files is mounted run the above command via sudo. It may be that the permissions are too restricted for rsteff to change ownership of files owned by dick on that drive.
Elaboration: if the dick-owned files have permission 644 then only user dick can change their ownership because neither group members nor others have write permissions on those files. Root does, though. Rich _______________________________________________ PLUG mailing list PLUG@pdxlinux.org http://lists.pdxlinux.org/mailman/listinfo/plug
