Shared partition and user write permission
I've been having trouble getting this to work correctly. Let me first explain my setup:
I created a dual boot machine. FC4 and WinXP. This HD has three partitions. One for Linux, one for WinXP, and a shared partition for files to be shared between the two operating systems.
The shared partition was formatted fat32 using windows.
I didn't have any problems mounting or reading the partition.
I want local users to have the ability to write to this partition <-- This is what I'm having trouble with. After doing some research I thought I had it fixed by changing how I mounted the partition in /etc/fstab with the following:
/dev/hda2 /files vfat users,umask=022 0 0
I know this is not the most secure solution, however I did have it working... at least until I decided to reboot the machine.
Now my local users cannot write to the partition. Am I way off with what I came up with (remember it did work once). Is there another, better, more secure way??
Thanks very much in advance for the help!
