Titel: Help with changing ownership of a partition
Hello, I have a 2GB partition that was formerly my swap partition. But with over 1GB of RAM I decided to use that small partition for booting an ISO.....fromiso actually. The problem I am having is when I changed the partition from SWAP to EXT3, I do not have access to the partition to write to it. It seems ROOT owns it and I am not sure what to do. I used the "chown" command so maybe I didnt get it quite right. If I SU then it let me copy some files to it. But I need to be able to access it as "user" .
So what I am seeking is to change the owner, which is ROOT to me, the user BOB.....

chown 1000:1000 -R mountpoint
be sure NOT to use / as mountpoint. 1000 is the default user, when you are the one and only user.
