    Mozilla Package - Mandrake 10.1


    I have created the default directory but I don't have access to it to install the Mozilla Package. What is the command to gain access to the directory. Any assistance appreciated.

    You can use 'su' in commnadline with
    Code:
    su
    rootpass
    and then you have root access through the terminal to the dir;

    open a termional window and type:
    Code:
    su
    then enter the roots password.
    then type:
    Code:
    chmod 7777 <full directory path>
    then type exit
    that's it!
