whenever i try to start classic i'm getting "You do not have sufficient permissions to run Classic from /Volumes/ivoFluffy (my other hard drive) /System Folder. Please correct permissions and restart Classic." I have just reinstalled osx , i'm thinking that would have triggered it, but i'm just in for the solution here.

If you know how to use the shell you can check the permissions to that drive (ls -al) if you don't have Read/write access you can use the command chmod 755 <folder name>

But I'm sure I'm overcomplicating it :-)

Actually the three digits represent which group has what premissions, for instance, chmod XYZ

X is user permission (YOUR permissions)
Y is group permission (Only if your group is different then your user name)
Z is the premission that Everyone has

The number is technically a 4 digit Octal code (the first digit representing whether or not it's a directory and therefore generally ignored or left off in the chmod command)

The common numbers used are the following
0 - No permissions
5 - Read Only
7 - Read/Write

More specifically:

4 = read
2 = write
1 = execute

Add these together to get whatever combination you want.

Use -R to set permissions recursively.

For more information, type "man chmod"

Hmm...how about just selecting the classic Mac OS drive, getting info and clicking under Permissions "Ignore permissions for this drive" something like that. You can do that if you have a separate drive with classic Mac OS.

You unix geeks Well ok, I am one too. I'm also a Mac geek.
