First of all I am a noob, this is really my first linux box and I have a couple of books coming to help with commands and the such, but I need some understanding about the flags used with mounting dives and partitions.
Ok, here is the situation: I have this box that has an 80 gig drive on it split into 4 partitions: a 4 gig, 10 gig, 2 gig, and the rest (about 60 or so, formatted as fat). I am using the 60+/- partition for 'personal files' and downloads. I FINALLY got SUSE to mount the drive correctly to give me full access to the drive (using the uid=(my user id numb)).
My question is this: is there anyway to mount this drive to make it accessible to anyone who has an account on this computer? Is this done with the gid? If so doesn't this open some possible security risks to network attacks?
Thanks for any info you guys can provide =)
