There are a few options I can think of offhand: 1. Everything goes straight into /media or media-based subdirs, read-only by some media group 2. Same, except also writable. This allows users to physically share music rather than allowing the sysadmin to decide what's shared. 3. A combination of the two, something like /media/dropbox/ that's writable. 4. Subdirs in /media per-user, each rw by user, ro by group. This sucks to dig through looking for things but keeps permissions well. Thoughts? -- Donnie Berkholz Gentoo Linux
