Humble Linux newb here. I have my SuSe 9.2 installation on my 40gb drive and I have an 80gb sata drive with all my music, movies, etc. I can access everything on the sata drive fine when using root credentials but my normal user can't do it. Even though I added my normal user to the root group it doesn't matter because ls -l shows the sata directory in /mnt to only allow the owner (root) access and no one else. If I try chmod, chgrp, or chown I get a read only message
So I have two questions:
1) How automatically set my normal user to use the file manager in super user mode.
2) How can I change the read/write ACL on my sata mount point? Would it be wise to do so? If I did that, would windows still be able to read the drive?
I hope someone can help me out of a simple yet annoying bind.
