For permissions issue, you can look into sudo. For configuring the boot loader, you will need to edit the config file for the loader. If its grub you can configure it using grub.conf or menu.lst depending on the version of the grub and the distribution you are using.
Also please from next time use better titles to suit your questions. http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html . A recommended link for reading.

First, thread titles should be descriptive so LQ members can hopefully get an idea of your query.

No need for anyone else to address the title issue!

You can look at link #2 RUTE for some useful examples & explanations that will help you to understand.

Several other links below to aid you to gaining some understanding;



1 Linux Documentation Project
2 Rute Tutorial & Exposition
3 Linux Command Guide
4 Bash Beginners Guide
5 Bash Reference Manual
6 Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
7 Linux Newbie Admin Guide
8 LinuxSelfHelp
9 Utimate Linux Newbie Guide

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
