Change ownership
Using Suse 10, I cannot permanently change ownership in a vfat formatted usb disk (Sandisk) .
Can someone helps ?

vfat does not have permisions and ownership! You can't set any permanent info on the partition itself, only via mount options.

You can impose ownership with the uid/gid options and permissions with the umask option.

You fstab should have a line like this:

/dev/hdb1 /mnt/vfat_usb vfat umask=077,uid=1000 0 0

In this case all files on the disk will be -rw------ for the guy with uid 1000. Hope this helps.
