Default Permissions

I have changed the permissions on the Windows and the mnt folders, yet when I attempt to access them from the user desktop, I get a dialog that says that only the root can do this. How do I give the user this permission also? The user is part of the root group already.

Default Re: Permissions

Read the man pages for 'chown', 'chgrp', and 'chmod'.

Default Re: Permissions

The commands seem simple enough, but where are they used? Do you just navigate to a file with a terminal and issue the command there?
