Did you "chown misclc /home/misclc/floppy" ?
To modify permissions, use chmod: "chmod 755 /home/misclc/floppy".
If they're ftp'ing in as user misclc, then the 'other' permissions
shouldn't be bothering you. However, if it's owned by root (or anyone
else, then it will look to the 'other' write permission.

That sounds kinda goofy. Try the chown above and see if it lets you mount
the floppy as misclc then.
