      Yes, but it's not recommended.

      a relatively "safe" way (maybe. I never tested it on nslu) is to run
      chown or chmod only on the directory you're interested in. Something
      - chown -R your_username /media/nslu-drive/path/to/where/your/folders/will/be
      - chmod -R 777 /media/nslu-drive/path/to/where/your/folders/will/be

      The key here is to ONLY change owner or permission of a particular
      folder, NOT the whole nslu drive.
