Do file permissions persist if OS is reinstalled?

I have Fedora Core 5 on hda.
All my data (music, vids, docs, etc) is on hdb.
I have set up file permissions to only allow certain users access to certain files/folders.

If I format and reinstall Fedora on hda, and re-mount hdb, do the permissions remain on the files?

I'm conerned if I do this I'll lose access to my files.

Any thought?

There should be no problem. Owner and group identifiers are stored with the file. (http://www.science.unitn.it/~fiorell...lk/node96.html)

Thank you.

To clarify, If I reinstall Fedora, and add the same users/passwords I currently have, those users should still have file access?

Correct, you should be fine. I have always upgraded by reinstalling and have never had any issues.
