Description Mike Shaver 2001-09-24 22:34:22 EDT
Issuing the command
# mount -oremount,uid=500,gid=500 /win
doesn't actually cause the UID or GID to be changed:
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root           92 Sep 22 12:20 /win/autoexec.bat

It does, however, cause /proc/mounts and mount(8) to indicate the new
/dev/hdg1 on /win type vfat (rw,uid=500,uid=500,gid=500)
(I can't explain the duplicate "uid=500" entries.)

My kernel is kernel-2.4.7-10.athlon, installed on an up2date-as-of-today
Roswell RC2 (7.1.94) system.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
