Im working at a school where there are a good share of Macbook's.

At all time we have about 3-4 of maybe 200 inn because of a bad system or harddrive (The students treat them like sh*t).

Ofcourse they dont have any backup, so i got to try to save as much as i can.

With normal computers i use live ubuntu, at that works at all time.

But i with mac i have user right issues, i have tried nautilus etc.

They wont let me make folders or drop any information into the harddrive! I have been using FAT32 system, that should work on every system right? The disk works rigth on any other computer, just not the live ubuntu on mac.

Any clue?
