Well, this only applies for FAT drives, not for Minix partitions. For a
real Multi-User system based on MiNT, I'd recommend having only a small
boot partition with FAT and write protect it with the harddisk driver
(at least HDDRIVER has such a feature). All other drives should have a
Minix filesystem with the correct access permissions.
