I've already done the following commands
chown theif519 /home/theif519
chmod 775 /home/theif519
#usermod -d /home/theif519 login *I would also like for someone to explain how this command works, if you'd be so kind*
I've logged out and logged back in, and I was successful in making it the default directory it logs in to. Still, afterwards I noticed that that when I use the list all commands "ls -l" it shows that root owns it and it also shows that I do not, by default, have read write execute over it, only read execute. Sorry if I'm not making any sense. *I'm using Slackware 13.37* in a Virtual Machine*
Another thing, I don't think I added any rights to my user, how do I give it more rights as well? Like, wheel and sudo and all of that stuff.
Also, this was the website I was using *Although it didn't help much, the comments sure did*
