Red Networked to Apple iBook
Hi everyone! I just got an Apple iBook G4 and I've managed to network my Red Hat power Dell Latitude notebook to it as an SMB share.
I'm logged into the Dell as a normal user (not root) and I run a simple shell script using "smbmount" to mount the Apple's shares. The thing is, even if I log in as root and create a folder with 777 permissions, then go back in as a normal user, when I mount the Apple to that new folder the permissions revert to 755! I can log out as the normal user and log back in as root and then write to the Apple's drive, but I can't stay where I am and do so (thought I can read files on the Apple just fine.)
How can I mount the Apple's drives so they are writable outside of root? I know I can put a line Fstab to do so but I don't want to since both machines are laptops and I need to mount and unmount the Apple withing working sessions on the Dell.
