I'm a little confused on how a hd from dell or sony could prevent unix
permissions from working as any hd with store whatever kind of data you
tell it, they no nothing about what that data means. The UNIX
permissions are handled entirely in software. I've never heard of any
kind of problem like this before, perhaps you could enlighten me?

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
