Logged in as root?

    Probably being a bit dim here and I'm sure I know the answer already.

    If I'm logged in as root and create a new file share which creates a directory that did not previously exist and then add user to the share with read/write perms, will I still have the same read/write perms if I VNC into ubuntu to manipulate the folder/files via GUI?

    I assume the answer is yes but I want to be sure.

    Also, if a new user is created with primary group as "users", what is the impact of adding "root" as one of the users secondary groups?

    Yes to the first question and the second question I believe the user would have root permissions but maybe someone can verify that.
