Subject:   Tutorial removes any privaleges for writing to "Macintosh HD"

Is it just me who noticed that after carrying out this tutorial I could no longer move or remove files from the 'Macintosh HD' folder.


If I try to move an item to the folder now I get the following message:


The item "X" could not be moved because "Macintosh HD" cannot be modified.


I can also no longer remove items from this folder, the system only allows me to copy items from this folder?


Is this normal? It worries me as I cant remember not being able to modify this folder previously.


I know I can remove this problem using the command


sudo chmod g+w /


but this in turn would mean that the unix mail wouldnt work correctly (i presume)


Help anyone?
