I've been doing backups with Alonzo's (osiekhan) DVD burner. It's really nice to have 4 gigs of space, and I haven't coastered anything yet, but there's one minor (and annoying) snafu. Check out the permissions on /mnt/dvd:
dr--r--r-- 5 4294967295 4294967295 292 Dec 4 2003 /mnt/dvd
I've been sifting around the
fstab man pages and trying various options. No combination of
umask= seems to give me anything that's perusable by anyone other than root. Ah well, minor price to pay for having that much space at my finger tips.
