I have the most recent Zenwalk distro for a home file server, and i have two 160gb IDE drives installed and partitioned as follows:
sda (first hdd)
10G - root
70G - user1
70G - user2
10G - swap
sdb (second hdd)
70G - share1
70G - share2
10G - share3
Root formatted as ext2 (i think) and all the rest (excepting swap) formatted as FAT32 (i think).
I was able to chmod 777 the shares on sdb, but i cannot chmod the user shares on sda. I try, and receive no error messages. But when i list the dirs, the permissions are unchanged.
I even tried creating a subfolder /user2/subfolder and tried to chmod 777 that - with no luck. Same behavior as before.
I am working as root for all of this, and all shares are owned by root user and group.
1. What's going on?
2. how can i verify again the filesystems that i imposed on these partitions?
