Re: [I98turboRI@aol.com: Newbie permissions question.]

All you should have to do is add yourself to group dip.  Login as root (or
su) and use 'usermod -G dip username'.  That should do it, you can check
what groups you are in by logging in as yourself and typing 'groups'.  As
for the permissions, type 'man chmod' to read all about them.
