Hey I am telling you; you made my day, I knew I could do a reinstall, but it proves if you are patient and wait it out, something good my come out of it.

By the way, what does chmod mean? Change modification?

Thanks,

Again....

chmod changes the permisions of files/folders. type man chmod for the man page.
Basicly it looks like this
4 == execute +x
2 == write +w
1 == read +r

just add them up to get the permisions(1=read,2=write,3=read/write,6=write/execute,etc...)
and the order is (owner)(group)(other) so 755 would be 7(read/write/execute) to the owner, 5(read/execute) to group, and 5 to everyone else as well
