Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a hard drive that is formatted with ext3 filesystem .. It has nothing on it right now as I would like to just use it as storage. It is one big partition.
I would like to have regular users be able to read and write to it but I cannot figure out how to set it to umask=0 (like you can with ntfs or fat partitions in fstab). ext3 does not have that option (yes, I checked the man pages).
What is the option to include in fstab to make ext3 drives read/write to anyone that mounts it?
i mounted my ext3 partitions with no umask (it is not possible to give it anyway) and chmod worked out. However if i create a new directory now it will have drwxr-xr-x which means i cant write in to it
How can i mount ext3 so that any newly created directory will have permissions like :drwxrwxrwx ?
