hi.

i have an external firewire drive. i would log in as "admin" and set the permission that i = admin is the owner with read and write rights, group has only read rights and others has only read rights (or no access).

once i log in as a different user, the owner suddenly becomes this! user (and not as admin as previously configured).

any good unix experts here?

Did you make sure the other user doesn't have admin privileges?

Did you make sure the other user doesn't have admin privileges?

uh, you mean in system preferences:accounts?

Did you follow the link I posted? It has the solution.
