user login script


Hello there.

I have a couple of internal drives (datastorage, music, backup) that I provided access to myself (user A) and another user (user B). Now there is a third user (user C) in the picture who desires access to my machine. However, I do not want user C to have access to my internal drives. I have configured fstab to mount my internal drives at startup.

Now, my problem is, how do I bar user C from seeing my internal drives.

I have included my fstab config file for reference:
Code:
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/sdb1    /media/datastorage vfat defaults,umask=0000    0    0
/dev/sdb2    /media/music    vfat    defaults,umask=0000    0    0
/dev/sda3    /media/backup    vfat    defaults,umask=0000    0    0
Any help would be appreciated.

Create a group for accessing these partitions. Make users A & B members of the group. For an example, lets call it abaccess. Then incude the mount options "gid=abaccess,fmask=117,dmask=007". This will mount the vfat partitons with group ownership of abaccess. The directories will have rwxrwx--- access. User C, not being a member of the abaccess group won't be able to read any of the files, or even enter the diretories. The fmask and umask options are in place of your old umask entry.
