Move the /Users folder
Authored by: sam452 on Feb 17, '03 08:48:35AM

Must be missing something. I've tried the "ditto" command and
the "cp -Rp" command.

I get the Users folder o nto my Volumes/Carmela no problem. It's
the permissions that show up as sam.unknown. I was using root
in the terminal to do the command ( I know because I see

I've used chown -R sam.staff while in the directory of "sam"
I've used "chown root:admin /Volumes/Carmela/Users; chmod
755 /Volumes/Carmela/Users"

I still have the directories listed as "sam.unknown"

I think I've copied the files wrong to lose ownership.

Pls point me in the right dir, thanx, sam
