Brad,

This permissions stuff is exactly what I am struggling with now. I can

mount the export with root access. How do I now grant the unix
permissions for users and groups? I trust this is something I can do from my Netware administrative tools. Otherwise, the whole concept of
my
keeping control of access rights to my server goes down the tube!
Also,
is there some way using NWAdmin or C1 that I can view the unix
permissions?
