Why does a chmod command stops working after a reboot?


Hello all,

I am using Debian 'lenny' stable release and have three partitions.

Of course, the first one is the root and the second is the swap. Anyway, the third one is my backup partition called Linux.Backup

I want to be able to use my backup partition (ext3) to store things, but it wouldn't show up as a normal user.

I was able to see my backup partition if I use the chmod command under 'root' account like this chmod -R a+rwx /media/Linux.Backup

When I go in my normal account, I do see the backup partition. When I reboot the computer and login again as a normal user I don't see it at all. It doesn't seem to retain the ownership?

How do I make it permanent?

Is it really honestly ext3? That's what I'd expect to see happen with a fat32 / ntfs filesystem which can't store POSIX file attributes.

Does the same behaviour occur on just unmounting and remounting the partition?
