Re: [K12OSN] Re: Help! Please!



Ok, I'm assuming I messed that md1 up for good.  I'm a jackass. Moving
on....With knoppix, I read-only mounted one of the raid 1 partitions
of /home and did "cp -r -p " to a usb2 drive.  But I noticed that all
of the owners and groups were "unknown".  It would be great if I could
run a chown script to recursively make the owner of the folders the
same as the name of the folder.   Does anybody know how that script
would go?


Thanks,
Peter
