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 counter strike directory that contains the files needed to run a counter strike server, along with the maps and addons and what-not.
Right now it's created in /home/zssz/steam/cstrike
I have a user called flaming. I set up an account for him with a home of /home/flaming
I then created a symbolic link from /home/flaming/cstrike that lead to /home/zssz/steam/cstrike
I then added flaming to the zssz group so that he could modify files from ftp.
My problem is that sometimes a file's permission doesn't always allow write access to groups. Sure I can just chmod -R periodically to allow the files to be written to by the group, but there has to be some other way. That would mean everytime a new map or addon is uploaded to the server, that command would have to be run in order for him to be able to modify/remove those files. Is there a better way to do this? The only other way I thought of was to just give whoever needed access the user & pass of the zssz user, but that's not going to be happening.
