Some things that used to work in FC3 but don't in FC4: device permissions



In FC3, /dev/hd* was created with permissions 660 and owner root.disk.
In FC4, the ownser is still root.disk, but the permissions are 640

Booting a VMware virtual machine using a raw disk requires that the user running VMware have write access to the disk devices. The easiest way to accomplish that used to be to add the user to the disk group, but this no longer works as it did.

What's the recommended way to solve this problem in FC4?
