write permission and konqueror
I've got some more questions...
First off, I figured out how to install a program called eagle.rpm using alien to unpack it in root shell. It is a program for designing printed circuit boards for electronics (im an electronics hobbyist), so I need to save files and things to it obviously. Since I installed it via root shell, the folder that I installed it in will not let me write to it. I would have to be logged in as root in order to change those options. When I tried logging in as root, it said that root login was not allowed. What do I do here?
I also tried switching username in root shell to the username I always used. Everything seemed to go fine, but when I went to see if the files had been installed they weren't there! What do I do?
Second question, I at first wanted mozilla firefox to be my browser for looking at folders and stuff on my computer, then I realised the konqueror is much better to do that. But it was too late, I had already changed it over so that firefox was the default browser, and now I don't know how to change it back (I don't even remember how I did it in the first place).
Also, if I say "open with" and then use konqueror to open hda3, I get this error message. This only happens w/ the HD, not when opening folders on my desktop.
There appears to be a configuration error. You have associated konqueror w/ application/x-desktop, but it cannot handle this file type
Thank you, and sorry for the newbie questions

You should be able to fix ths with chown and chmod commands.
I'll say it writes to /usr/goo/foo/eagle in my examples, please change to fit.
In a root terminal:Code:
chown zachtheterrible /usr/goo/foo/eagleCode:
chmod 744 /usr/goo/foo/eagle
