is multiple ownership of a single file possible? NON GROUP
So my professor is having us do some ridiculous things to our server, even though he said not to do them all according to his handout....ANYWAY one thing we are supposed to do is make a script that does $ chown -hR user1 / which makes user1 become the owner of all the files that root owns.
I was wondering something now because of this: can a user1 be an owner of a file that is also owned by Root? I know Root owns everything, but is it really possible for another user to co-own everything that root owns? User1 can now delete files created and owned by Root? Oh and they are NOT in the same group.
NOTE: This is not a question on my lab report, therefore I am not asking for answers on my schoolwork. I am asking this as a result of extra interest that came out of my assignment, and I have also looked on google.com/linux for an answer, but I didn't find anything.
