FYI, [V]FAT supports a 6 file attributes:

   hidden attribute (if set, file should be hidden)
   read-only attribute (if set, file isn't writable)
   system attribute (if set, file shouldn't be moved on the disk)
   volume attribute (don't worry about this.)
   archive attribute (if set, file should be archived)
   directory attribute (don't worry about this either.)
Take a look at my previous post ( Re: [vox-tech] good reference source for fstab permissions variables/syntax ) and the mount(8) manpage for tips about mounting vfat drives.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
If you don't know what it is, either ignore it or visit www.gnupg.org
My PGP key was last signed 6/10/2003 please download my key again if
it is more recent than your copy. If you use GPG, *please* talk to
me to sign it. The key is keyID E2B2CAD1 on pgp.mit.edu
