Using VMware - Host: WinXP; Guest: Linux 8.0:
Following advice I received elsewhere yesterday,
I modified Linux start up files (level 3) with
mount -t smbfs to connect to a shared directory in
WinXP. On WinXP, both the directory and the share
permissions give full control to Everyone. On
Linux, the both /mnt and /mnt/linuxShare have
As root, on the Linux side I have full control in the
shared out directory.
As another user in Linux, I cannot create a new file in
the shared out directory. This fails with cp, vi, and
touch. Oddly, I can use vi to modify a preexisting file.
Advice would be much appreciated.
