override permissions
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 27, '01 11:58:15PM

you need to enable the root password through netinfo, under security.

Then open up the terminal, and su into root.

With root, you can remove anything...so be careful and don't delete any important files.

You can also use chmod to change directory permissions
If you don't know about unix commands, the easiest way to learn is to look at the man files. type man and the command that you are interested in.
