Re: simple ftp problem
Do you wish to share your dos partition for the anonymous user or
for some other user on your system?
If you wish to share it for a non-anonymous user, say for 'rbs', you
need to give it all permissions by:
# mount /dev/hda1 /dir/to/mount -o uid=`id -u rbs`
Then you can either just cd to /dir/to/mount after ftp'ing or you can
make a symbolic link:
$ ln -s /dir/to/mount ~/dos
Hope this helps,
