I can't remember offhand how I stopped the mnttab having 666 perms; probably a mod to one of the startup files... > Note, that atleast on our system, quotaon sets the mode to 600 > and this break the df command (and quota -v for the user if > memory serves) I think I tracked this behaviour down to having root umask of 077. I.e, quotaon sets perms of mnttab to (666 & ~umask). -- Luke Mewburn, <lmwerj.com.au> ``Think of it as Evolution in Action'' -- 'Oath of Fealty', Niven & Pournelle
