Vista partition access.....
I am frustrated with the inability to throw files back and forth between my Suse partition and my Vista partition. Older versions of Windows didn't create a problem for me. I can do this as Root only, and as Root, I can reset the permissions but as soon as I log off the partitions revert weather I boot into Windows or not. I seldom run Windows actually. In addition if I use a USB key, Vista will reset the permissions and I cannot copy stuff from my Linux partition to the USB key without first changing permissions......I can do this from any user account however.
I can access Vista partitions as read only......but that seems to be all. It is a pain to have to drop into the root account just to toss a file over. I have not tired going SU in the command line and doing it from there...... I presume that would work, but it would be a pain. I personally like having a GUI...... I remember the bad old days when we had to specify entire paths for copy and move commands and such....I'm not willing to go back to that.
