well, i actually resigned... There is no solution for it.
The problem is the filesystem. Those flash-disks come with a vfat
filesystem out of their box. Vfat does not know anything about
users/permissions etc. (hence no chmod/chown etc.). The only solution is
to mount it with umask 777 which is not really an option ;) Changing
it's filesystem to to something like ext2nd is not working with my
MacOS-X box and ufs is not working with my MacOS-9 box... And now think
of ntfs...
Okay, i think i stick to vfat and keep my hands securly on the disk...
Too bad.
