With the help of a network engineer my Linux workstation can now access our
Novell fileserver, so I won't tear anymore hair out. This afternoon I tried
to run the "ncpmount" function as a user other than root. But it won't let
me. I tried to create an application link to the ncpmount app (located in
sbin)(I cheated ,I did it in Konqueror) but that would not work. So I figure
I have a few options and I would like the some more experienced user's views.
1. Run as root at all times (not desireable I would think)
2. Make my user a member of the root group (is this as bad as option 1)
3. Try to move ncpmount and the ipx_interface executables to an accessable
Any thoughts or further suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
