You can't make the entire hda2 read only. Every user needs write permission in the /tmp directory. In the other directories it's already like you want it to be. At least should be on a sane system. No normal user can do any harm there.
Yeah what he said. You don't need 3 hard drives. Just one will suffice. That way you can use the other ones as alternative operating systems or backups. Permissions are automatically set when you install. When installing DSL to a hard drive, I usually boot the DSL CD in text mode with "dsl 2" and then run "dslinstall." Some people don't like this method but there is obviously more than one way to put a penguin in a box.
