    I tried to have a full access to my own file on hd, if i am not in root. I can do everything when i am in root. For example, i can`t create or modify any files in my /home (or others). Maybe it is a security level, but i didn`t take a paranoid level???

    Code:
    ls -al /home/
    ?

    Can you take a real-world example of something that you can't do, and exactly what error message it gives you?

    Ok,

    i install Mandrake9.2 and make new user: for example mosg (and i have a root). When i login with mosg ... then i go to my home dir ( /home ), press right button and then Create -> Folder/File/(what ever). Os gave me msg: Permission denied.

    Sorry for my english, its not so good(i am from Russia)

    :P

    Your home dir would be /home/mosg or ~/mosg

    The first one: /home/mosg

    And if i create a dir (with root) in my /home/mosg, for example /home/mosg/dir1/dir2, i can`t create any files in it (with mosg login).
