I agree,<strong>please</strong> stop reccomending using root login. sudo is your friend!

Also, you will not successfully copy permissions, and user attributes when you use Mac OS 9 to copy OS X files.

well there is always
sudo ditto -vR -rsrcFork 
but in case you didn't read the thing, i didn't mention the command line once. apple says you don't need the command line if you don't want it, all i did was proove them right. :P or i could have recomended using psudo but that is a 3rd party utility and just as big of a can of worms as the terminal
