No, I just assumed that the sub-partitions would inherit the same
uid/gid as the parent. I have done a chown -R.

That would be a neat feature because I have some fairly large
partitions hosted on another server (solaris 9 on sparc and vxfs)
which shares disk via nfs. Everytime I create a new partition I must
create and mount the partitons on each webserver.

Not that I have many webservers, but it would be nice to create a
/data-partition, then a image-partition below that and then a, b, c,
d, e, f etc. (/data/image/a).

Then all I had to do was to mount the image-partiton and I wouldn't
have to worry about mounting other than the image-partition on the
