RE: File transfers between linux and windows?



Don't mount as root, or chmod the dir before you mount.

While on the mounting of other file systems how would you
mount a nother file system so that a normal user will have
rw access to another partition? When i mount a FAT
partition only root will have write access while a normal
user will only have read access.
