10.5: Search system folders in Spotlight

I believe you will need to be root to read those files so you would need to be root to spotlight the contents.

Nope.

Wrong.

Thanks for playing.

You do not need to be Root anything to read those files. Admin and Standard Users can bring up a list of system files as well as read them.

Certain files cannot be saved/ written to by an Admin or Standard Account.
