Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have installed Kubuntu as well as PCLinuxOS on my system.
Apart from the two partitions being used I have another partition in use. It is mounted under KoolDrive folder under root on both the installations. I am able to change permissions of files and folders in this folder under PCLinuxOS but not under Kubuntu.
If I execute ls -l in the folder, this is the following output:
(The rwxrwxrwx is because of my experimentations).
What I would like to do is to be able to create files, delete files, execute files and change file permissions from both distros. Sort of, use it like a shared folder between both installations.
For now I can only create, execute and delete files but not change permissions [I would prefer to have only a few files as executables, but all the files are now executables due to my previous experimentation with chmod].
The fstab line reads as follows on both the linux installations:
/dev/hda11 /KoolDrive ext3 user,exec,rw,auto 0 0
Please help me come up with a solution.
Linux rocks !
