    help by managing files in a network


    hi!
    i want to see a movie that is in a share in my lan, so i mount it. But then when i tried to see it with mplayer, i get the error "file not found". I put "ls" and it is right there. And when i tried to copy it into my hd, i get the error "cp: cannot open `foo.avi' for reading: Permission denied".

    What can i do?

    Thx in advance

    you very well might need root to copy things from a share to your personal space (my computer seems to need root for me). so:
    Code:
    su -
    cp /mnt/share/movies/foo.avi /home/foo/movies
    -lakerdonald

    I think it was a lesser being that make that decision....

    Code:
    "Where do you want to go today?"
    
    C:\>Linux
    The name specified is not recognized as an
    internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
    
    C:\>
    /IMHO
    //got nothin'
    ///this use to look better
