How to give write permissions to a disk
I am using slackware 11.0. I know all about file permissions
and the umask stuff. As root, I added the group family
using the groupadd command. I then created the directory
family in the /mnt directory. Then I ran the command
chown root:family /mnt/family and chmod 775 /mnt/family.
As root, I mounted the disk and was able to read and write. Next, I login as a normal user. I can only read and not write to the disk. When I want to write to the disk, I have to login as root everytime. It becomes tedious after awhile.
I appreciate your help. Thanks
