is there something like local/global groups


I want to set up shares on directories (like in windows)
but how do i make security groups, put users into them and then set permissions to folders for those security groups?

thanx for the help
Maarten

Well, this is one of the answers. Create a new group using the groupadd command. Next add the required users to that group. Next, create a directory and change its group owner to the new group(Using chmod). You can also set the files as GID files. You can set the group permissions of the files and folders in this directory to suit your needs(again use the chmod command).

An more doubts? Post them...
