Dual Booting

Its good to see that I'm not alone. Mark Pilgrim is having the same problem dual booting as I am. The other issue he doesn't note is that file permissions on vfat volumes are a little arbitrary.

Its not surprising given that Windows and Unix have such different schemes, but it is a little annoying that when you mount a Windows device (vfat drive) under Linux that all of the files on it appear to belong to root.
