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've got an external disk mounted on /media/usb-storage-YA42H1MWE:0:0:0P1
I want to share this with another linux box (This disk is also plugged in to a Windows box sometimes -- it's a removable 250 GB USB disk so that's why it's got a FAT32 file system on it.).
Mount shows it's also on /dev/sda1 and it's a FAT32 file system.
I've also mounted on /sda1 on /media/extdisk type vfat and exported the directory OK
On the client side I can access the disk but whatever file permissions I give the directory I can only get READ access unless I'm Root.
2 Boxes Server greyfox @ 192.168.7.2
Client blackdog @ 192.168.7.3
Here's the status on the client side
/dev/hda8 on / type reiserfs (rw,acl,user_xattr)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
/dev/hda2 on /windows/C type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,gid=100,umask=0002,nls=utf8)
/dev/hda5 on /windows/D type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,gid=100,umask=0002,nls=utf8)
/dev/hda6 on /windows/E type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,gid=100,umask=0002,nls=utf8)
/dev/hda7 on /windows/F type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,gid=100,umask=0002,nls=utf8)
/dev/hdc on /media/dvdrecorder type subfs (ro,nosuid,nodev,fs=cdfss,procuid,iocharset=utf8)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
greyfox.site:/home/jim on /mnt/desktop type nfs (rw,addr=192.168.7.2)
greyfox.site:/media/extdisk on /mnt/linuxmaxtor type nfs (rw,addr=192.168.7.2)
greyfox.site:/home/jim on /mnt/jimsdesktop type nfs (rw,addr=192.168.7.2)
The entry /media/extdisk shows clearly that the disk is READ WRITABLE -- so how do I get WRITE permission for a user rather than root.
The Network aspect seems fine to me -- but I'm having real problems sorting out File access permissions.
I thought I'd be stuck the other way round. I'm using SUSE 9.1 on both boxes.
( I wonder if it has anything to do with the way hotplug USB is implemented -- there was a similar problem with using a Scanner as a normal USER -- there was a get around for that --but YOU (online update) has fixed it).
