I am very new to Linux and I just got my first server up and running. I noticed a problem that whenever I transferred my data the permissions were different than I wanted but unlike netware when I change the permissions in a folder the child folders remain the same. I would like to know how to change permisssions to a folder and all child folders of that folder. I am using fedora with gnome desktop. I would prefer to change permission with the file manager but would use the command line if I have to.
