    having trouble mounting a harddrive


    This is the weirdest problem I've had with linux yet.

    When I mount my second hardrive it changes the permissions on the mounted directory to where no won can look at it.

    Here is my fstab entry for it

    Code:
    /dev/hdb1        /mnt/storage     auto        defaults,users   1   1
    I want to share it over my network using samba but when I mount no one can see it but the user that mounts. It I the root user than ony he can see it but if I use a normal user account same thing happens.

    I can see the share on my network I just open it. Thanx in advance for any help.

    bignester.

    What filesystem do you have on it?

    think I have a fat32 on it. It was running win98 before I disconnected it.

    Maybe you should try putting ext3 or another Linux filesystem of your choice on it instead? That will probably fix the problem.

    That would be fsck to check the filesystem, or badblocks to check the physical device.
