i am trying to get data off USB drive that was attached to Linksys NSLU2 nas server.
it gives me permission denied when i try to open or copy anything.
i have it attached to a Ubuntu computer so i can read the file system.
i guess i need to force ownership or like a chmod 777 on the entire disk.

thanks for the help in advance.
