    I would need an advice to solve the following problem:

    I am running 10.5 Server and I need for every command (writing, deleting etc) on drive D and E to Authenticate. I see the problem that these two drives (D, E) are not root drives, but how to change it. I am the only user and administrator at the same time.

    These are the permissions of the drives I have in my computer:

    Drive No.1
    lrwxr-xr-x 1 root 1 Oct 5 06:59 "A" -> /
    drwxrwxrwx 11 root 442 Oct 4 21:38 "B"
    drwxrwxrwx 13 root 510 Oct 5 07:11 "C"

    Drive No.2
    drwxrwxrwx 24 localadmin 884 Oct 5 10:43 "D"
    drwxrwxrwx 469 localadmin 16014 Oct 4 21:28 "E"
    drwxrwxrwt 37 root 1326 Oct 4 21:36 "F"

    Thanks in advance.

    This isn't too hard - the chown command is your friend here. All drives in Mac OS X are mounted at /Volumes, so the commands to enter into the Terminal would follow this pattern:

    sudo chown (new user's name) /Volumes/(drive name)
