    When I installed Lion I saw that (even though I am admin) I can only read. Here the picture - http://cl.ly/0A0a3B0A0y0W2O0G3f0t

    I re-installed Lion but it still says that I can only read and that has been causing problems for me. This was all fine in snow leopard. How can i fix this? :confused:

    I tried repairing permissions and it said: User differs on “private/etc/hosts”; should be 0; user is 501.

    Are you allowed/given the option to change it to "Read & Write"

    yes but before in snow leopard it said that i can read and write.
    Also I tried repairing permissions and it said: User differs on “private/etc/hosts”; should be 0; user is 501.
