I have a directory: /dos with rwx for root and r-x for wheel and r--
for the rest.
My username is part of the wheel group and I want to change
permissions so wheel can also write to this directory. I use chmod 774
/dos, but when I do a ls -l nothing has changed. I perform this as
su'd to root.

This directory is /dos which is the mount point for my physical disk
2. This disk is a fat32 drive. The fstab entry is

/dev/ad1s1	/dos	msdos	rw	2	2

Why can't I change permissions? I thought root could?

The box said "requires Win95 or better"...
So I installed it on FreeBSD;-)
