I was asked to add group-wrx permissions to a directory in another user's home folder.
I believe what I should do is run
chmod 771 -R directoryname in the parent directory. What I can't find anywhere on the tubes is how to specify which group I want to give these permissions to. I'm personally in a number of groups, and in a bunch I don't know about as root.
In case it matters, the system is running Redhat 5.4.
