moving a file to a folder gets error
I guess this is a general question? I have a fat 32 partition automounted to linux via fstab using:
/dev/hda2 /mnt/win vfat umask=000,defaults 0 0
I think that's it, or pretty close (not in front of me now). On the linux side I started writing files to it haphazardly and later decided to organize things, so using Nautilus (I think that's it. its that windows like file manager that comes with redhat). I made some directories and started moving files into them via click and drag. Occasionally, however, a move would fail and give me a general error (that's what it says; nothing specific). so, I finished moving as many files as I could into respective directories until I was left only with those that refused to go to their room. I can move the same file to another directory I made the same way, though. for these few files, I can't move it, copy it, cut and paste it or anything to the directory I created for it. I was able to move other files into the same directory so its not like no files would go. I even deleted it and recreated the directory and still those particulaar files would not go to it. Again, the same files will move copy or paste to orther directories i made for aother stuff.
Its the strangest thing. I have to say I don't think I tried it via command line, but even if it worked that way it is still a puzzle.
