How to retain orginal ownership and permission
How to retain the ownership and permission of data transferred with CD from Box-1 to Box-2. The data are originally owned by User with r/w permission. After burning the data on the CD they become read only. Copying them to Box-2 all files become read only by User and owned by Root. To get the data back to their original state involves certain work in running "chown" and "chmod".
Is there an easy way making use of CD as transfer medium retaining their orignal state, not via local network ? TIA.

As I recall, doesn't tarring the files keep their original permissions?

That would be great (haven't tested that myself though). The archive itself would become read-only anyway.
To restore ownerships: doCode:
# chmod -R [yourusername]:users *** Registered Linux User # 393717 and proud of it ** Check out www.zenwalk.org
** Zenwalk 2.8 - Xfce 4.4 beta 2- 22.214.171.124 kernel = Slack on steroids! **
