I have been running Mandrake 8.1 and recently installed 8.2 on
the root partition, taking the opportunity to change to ext3 on this partition
only. The home partition was left untouched. Now, no matter how
often I do a chmod, after a reboot the file permissions on /home always
reset to 755 - not what you would want at all. It goes without saying
that I am doing all this as root. Any ideas?
