Unhappy Drupal 5.1 install failure

It also features overhauls and updates in system performance, usability, user interface, and theming.

Wondering if you can help?
I have installed 5.1 on my dev box and live server but I get the same error on both:

Drupal database setup ( Nice Logo!)

The following error must be resolved before you can continue the installation process:

The Drupal installer requires write permissions to ./sites/default/settings.php during the installation process.


The permissions are the same for drupal as all the others. 777

Am I putting the dir in the wrong place (webserver/public_html/drupal-5.1)

Bob, as the LXer threads are simply syndicated feeds, your question would probably go unanswered. I have moved your post to it's own thread in Linux-Server.
