I'm also a newbie, so my suggestion may be totally off the mark (plus it
doesn't matter if I hose my system; your system might matter, in which case
I'd take my suggestion with a large grain of salt). My suspicion is that
the files have different permissions that what you need to access them. Are
you logged in as root (or SU, etc)? If so, try logging in as a regular
user. If not, try logging in as root and see what happens (although
normally you don't want to log in as root except when absolutely
necessary). You can look at the permissions on the files with a command
similar to ls -a <filename>. The first column will have a bunch of Xs
and/or dashes, etc. Almost any tutorial on linux will explain what these
mean, or you can probably "man permissions" for more info.
