Unhappy Redhat 9 launcher help

I just installed Mozilla 1.4. I tried to change the launcher to go to the new version, but says somthing about a read only file system. It also happens when I try to delete a launcher. How do I bypass this?

Have you checked the permissions on the directory where you installed Mozilla with ls -l? The permissions should look like this if you want all users to have write access to the directory (usually a bad idea, IMO)...

drwxrwxrwx some_user some_group direcotry_name

If users absolutely must have write access, to this directory, the following command (issues as root) will change that directory and all files under it to writable by anyone:

chmod -R a+w <directory name>
