read/write remote access to fat32 via samba
I am new here, and I expect you guys can solve my problem
It as been a week I try to transfer a win2k server to mandrake 9.2
Hard job, since Linux was fairly new to me.
Anyway, I am almost there, but there is still a problem I coul'nt solve.
Using webmin, I did every manipulation I could, but I was not able to gain write access to the fat32 partition mounted on the linus server.
All the files on the disk seem to be property of 'administrator" user (same password as root) being administrator, I can read and write from a remote wink2 , from Linux too, BUT
Being anyone else, I can only read, and this applies to a local login, no user can write to that partition.
I already read lots of posts on this forum and on some others, but nothing worked. (use of umask mounting the drive...)
I do not really need a write access in Linux, but this seem to be a need to be able to get a remote write access (I read somewhere something about local read/write rights overriding samba rights)
Thank you for your help
