Thanks for adding the disclaimer + formatting, rob.

I'll have to remember to do that next time. BTW, I also should have mentioned that this is a *trick*, and if you can use mv and cp then it's preferable that you use those instead of launching a root Finder.

Basically, this is a little bit safer than just plumb logging in as root (via GUI) because *only* the Finder process is running as a root application.

So enjoy the trick, but be *careful*! You can seriously hose your machine in root (unwittingly), and GUI access only makes it easier...
