can't write to VFAT samba share from WIndows
I recently built RH8.0 Linux to serve as my kids' school file server. I mounted the existing VFAT drive to a mountpoint and I can get to it no problem from Windows - BUT I can't write to it unless I'm logged in as root (bad idea in a school).
I haved chmod'd the mount point to 777 and chgrp'd etc but when I remount, the ownership is root and the mode is 0755.
Seems logical that I cannot write to it with that mode setting, but I can;t for the life of me figure out how to open it up for writing.
Oh yes, I have other samba shares with the same smb.conf parms - no difference other than they are ext3 not vfat - they work fine - I need to keep the partition vfat for compatibility with a dual boot system.
