running files from a shared folder
I hope this is easy!
I'm trying to load some files to a local website from a shared (fat32) folder. I have the folder of files symbolically linked to the htdocs folder in my apache installation, but the problem is when I go to http://localhost/thatfolder/ I get a permission error.
When I check the permissions I find they are set for RW for Owner and Group, but not others. I can't change this because fat32 doesn't know the concept of all RW (ie, chmod 777 folder, doesn't work).
So how do I do this without copying the folder and all the files to my linux partition and changed the permissions? Is there a way to ignore permissions? Its just for developement, and its only local so I don't care about the security.

In /etc/fstab, edit the line for the partition, add 'umask=000' to the options for the parition, for instance, mine (for my ntfs partition, but it works the same way) reads:
/dev/hda3 /media/windows ntfs defaults,ro,umask=000 0 0Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
