I have the similar entries in my /etc/fstab file which says,
/dev/hda1 /mnt/dosC vfat defaults 0 0
But the problem is, I can write on this disk only if I'm root.
For other users I don't have the write permission. I have
read & exe permission although.
How can I get write permission also?
I tried chmod with 777 option, but I was unable to change the permission
One thing I found that with chmod command, I can't change the permission
of a directory, although I can change the permission of a file.
How can I change the permissions of the directory ?
I read the man page for chmod which says that we can change the permission
of both file & directory, but I'm unable to do that.
Well..... the command I used for this is,
# chmod 777 filename - this works
# chmod 777 dirname - this don't work ( why is it so )
Where I'm going wrong?
