simple ftp problem
i was actually feeling stupid at this simple problem, or so to me it seems.
i need to share my "dos" partition using ftp (with read/write facilities)
i guess i sure am missing out some simple method of doing this, but here's
what all i tried..!
1. mount /dev/hda1 to /var/ftp/pub/dos (but write access was denied..)
2. i tried to add a user "rbs" to the ftp group. and then connect fo ftp
3. "chown rbs:rbs /var/pub" (although its security wise insane, but anyways,
even that didnt work..-- probably coz /var was owned by root:root...)
4. tried to create a hard link for /dos , but hard link for directories is
! please, if anyone could help me out...
