Mounting and Permissions
Hello all, great forum!
Here's my situation:
I've got a dual-boot system (I can't fully let go of Windows yet) and I want to be able to share files between Fedora and Windows. So I created a vfat partition. To test it I went to Windows, found the drive, threw some files on it, then booted Fedora, mounted the drive and everything was there. Great! I created a 'shared' folder in my home/ directory, changed the permissions so everybody could read/write/execute, and edited my etc/fstab file so I didn't have to manually mount the shared drive every time I booted. But now I can't write to /home/shared -- the permissions (I think) were changed when the partition was mounted. How can I avoid this?
P.S. Here's what my new fstab line is:
/dev/hda3 /home/shared vfat defaults 0 3
