File / folder Permissions
I got my fat32 partition read / write for all users. I set up a fat32 because everything says that NTFS should be read only. I use the fat32 to transfer files between windows / Linux. Anyway I used a umask= 0000 which from what i read is full access. First is this to much access? I understand (a little) how umask works default mask is 7777 (full access) umask subtracts from mask ie.. 7777 – 0222 = a mask of 7555. Am I correct ? And what do the 4 position relate to ie.. ABCD position C = user rights ? and what do the values relate to ? 5 from what I can tell is = ro. Is there a chart or list somewhere ? The man pages don't really explain and most replies just tell you how to accomplish what you want to do. I am in need of understanding.
Thanks for any help or comments
