permissions
 
i have a folder with over 500 files which are all write protected, and i can't seem to change the permissions via the gui, only the parent(s) folder(s) are changed.

how do i change permissions for all the folders and sub folders/files

thanks in advance

Wrong answer ... ;)

What if he doesn't want everything to be world-readable?

man chmod
would have been the thing to say :}
