can you set a default umask for only certain directories?


I have an NFS share where I want everyone in group "foo" to be able to edit eachother's files, so in that dir, I want a umask of 002, but everywhere else, I'd rather it be 022. Is this possible?

Use guid=foo,umask=002 options in the /etc/fstab mount entry.

correction - these options are not available for NFS (they are for NTFS... what a difference a 'T' makes).

any other ideas?
