Thanks for responding to my query,
actually it is a raid5 storage device it contains
firewire and usb ports, through this
interface a user can store data to the raid5 device
irrespective of file system.
once he copied data to the device it should be
immutable(i.e cannot be modify and delete).
Can u suggest any approach to achieve this task.
