I've got the feeling that Donald is after the file or area that SuSE
stores its 'default' set of permissions that it refers to when it
automatically creates a new entry in fstab. Am I correct? If so, I
would be very interested in knowing this myself. I did ask a few
weeks ago but presumed that nobody knew as it went unanswered. I too
know about stuff like running chmod 777 as an example of giving full
read, write and execute permissions to everybody. It's just where
that default file actually is?

I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but, PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
