I can create new dirs on it, I assume I can create files as well. I'm
assuming it should be read/write/delete...
I've been looking to see exactly how centos/fedora assigns privs/perms
when doing auto mount for external/usb hard drives.
In the nutilus gui for the computer/drive, there is a item for
properties that has permissions.. I did set all of the sections that I
saw to read/write/delete in the event this was a perm issue.
