first newbie question... well... two of them i reckon
i have installed Neverwinter Nights with a Linux installer i found... all went fine except when i tried to install it to /home/mad/ (of which i am owner) it said i did not have permissions to install it. i don't know why it would not let me install as user... i had to be root as far as i could tell.
so i went through the terminal and su'd to root and installed it that way... loaded like a dream with no hitch. game runs great... the problem is that after thinking about it... i do not like having to go to root to run it. (the root area is dangerous ground for newbies... unless you want to keep installing the OS )
i am running on Mandrake 10 Official Download.
what i would like to know is two things... how to change ownership/permissions over from root to user (mad). i can see it under /home/mad/nwn but it has a padlock on it. what is the exact syntax for the command line in root ?
also i would like to know the delete command syntax so i can remove unwanted items in the future.
so in conclusion:
syntax for ownership/permission
syntax for delete command
ty... any help would be appreciated.
