Directory Permissions.

Hi all,

I've been playing with this, and I've found that the problem isn't a Samba 
one, but a Linux one.  If I try to do use the VFAT partition locally, I get 
the same problems as demonstrated by Samba.  I can add/amend/delete in the 
FS's root dir, but nothing after that.

anyone got any ideas?

Here's the relevant /etc/fstab entry.

/dev/hda2               /drvc                   vfat    gid=500,uid=500 0 0
