But if you administer your own Linux machine, it is possible to use CIFS to mount your home directory. If you are a grad student and your username is "joe," you can issue the following command to mount your grad home directory on /mnt:
mount -t cifs //koko.rutgers.edu/grad/users/joe /mnt -o users=joeYou will have to provide your LCSR Windows domain password to complete the mount process. And you will need the samba-client package installed for this to work.
Though all your files will appear to have the permissions of "-rwxrwSrwx", you will gain no extra permissions over your files. It is the underlying permissions which will be applied. [Note: Everyone on the machine where this mount is done will have your access to these files. It would therefore be wise, if you're working on a machine with other potential users, to mount the files under a directory others cannot read.]
This procedure has been tested under Fedora 10, but should work similarly under other operating systems.
