if you want a full set of permissions like on windows, you'd better 
install acl support on an xfs filesystem for instance. Distros like 
Mandrake (Redhat?) come with these tools already. xfs+acl support has to 
be compiled in the kernel or as modules, and a few other tools can be 
installed to get/set acls on the command line.
