I've got several issues with the OS that after constant discussion with Redhat on bugzilla have not been resolved. Therefore I want a clean, fresh install.
I think what I'll do is just chmod 777 both drives entirely and see how that works. Then I can just recreate the users and chown the files, chmod them back (and this is a well organized file system... a couple recursive chmods will do the job) and be done with it.
Thanks for the info.
