comment Linux, fat32 and etc/fstab
Right - I've figured it out. For anyone who gets the same problem, it might be program specific. For example, if I edit the text file using vi or gedit on my Mac, it's fine. Text Edit won't let me do it - so they must handle response codes (etc) differently. If I do a cp in the terminal, it copies ok, but I get the message fchmod failed: Permission denied - so Text Edit might be having a similar problem. Basically problem is all fixed for now though! Cheers guys

I added this to my fstab: UUID=XXX-XXX /media/drive1 vfat dmask=000,fmask=0111,user 0 0. This mounts and I can create / delete files over Samba (using a Mac), however I can't rewrite files (i.e. simple text file). I've shared a folder on my Linux's ext3 partition over Samba - I can re-save files here, but not on the FAT32 drive. Any ideas what I'm missing? I'm logging in as 'Guest' as I could never get the username / password part working. However I don't this is the issue as I can write over files on the ext3 extension ok. Any tips would be appreciated - must be close now! Thanks, Lee.
