    What filesystem are on these partitions? If it's FAT, you will need to either pass umask=000 as a mount option, or pass uid=<the UID of your user> or gid=<the GID of a group that you create and put your user in>. In the GID case, you also need to set the umask to 002.

    If that's the RH/Mdk security level that you set up while installing, then it's not the case. That's just the firewall setting.
    Note, though, that on Linux filesystems, normal users naturally can't put files in a directory that they don't have write permission to. Have you checked the permissions of those directories?

    What "src" are you referring to, btw.?

    Don't think of it as partitions; there's nothing different with a directory just because it resides in another partition (well, almost nothing, then... =) ). Just chmod/chown it as you would normally.

    In that case you might want to check out the texinfo documentation for them ("info chmod" and "info chown"). The chmod docs also describe the UNIX permissions system, so that's extra interesting.
