I've got a dual-boot NT/RH Linux setup with an extended partition that
has been created as FAT16 so that both linux and NT can use it.
I can mount the partition okay under linux and can create files on the
partition as the root user.
The problem is that any file or directory created is only editable by the
root user. If i use chmod and set permissions of 777 then nothing happens,
the permissions on the file remain rwxr_xr_x. I've tried changing the owning
group to a group that other users are a member of but linux just says that
the operation is not permitted.
The filesystem has been mounted with default options and a fs type of VFAT,
i'm not sure if this is causing the problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
