Thanks for the help, i got the permissions issue worked out, but I'm
interested in this --rsync-path command. It seems like it could be a
powerful tool to make up for the lack of rsync commands in Delta copy. Can
someone tell me how to use this to my advantage to change the group that is
assigned to the file in Linux. Since the groups in Windows and linux don't
transfer that well, I can't seem to get the transferred files assigned to
the right group. Detailed explanations please! thanks
