sorry for the english, i am lacking hebrew keyboard at the moment...
debian sid, 2.6.7-1-k7 .
got an external 250gb hard drive with fat32 filesystem (created in Linux with fdisk), connected via usb2.
the mount command is :
mount -t vfat -o rw,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=437 /dev/xxx /mnt/xxx
root can cd into the directory, create files, delete files, modify what he created., and chmod existing files.
on the other hand, he cannot chown existing files, but he can modify them (edit and save).
the files were copied to the disk using my computer at work, running windows 2000 server. files mode
is set to "-rwxr--r--" .
what am i missing here ??
