    A place where i am supreme emporer
    I can't save anything to System partition on my iMac G5 20 inch running under Panther.

    At work i have a this computer and it already came preformated from the last person to have this position with Partitions.

    This is not a problem, although would of not been my first choice, but whatever

    NOW, the problem that i have is that i can't save anything to the partition that has all the system files on it. IE i can't save anything to my desktop or inside any of the user folders.

    i can't take anything that comes from the internet that downloads to that partitons and i can't save anything after being extracted from my card reader.

    When i save something i get a message that says --- "CAN'T READ/WRITE"

    i checked inside the preferences and nothings is locked, all the folders have "read/write" enabled.

    Any help would be greatly appreaciated

    Go to Terminal and see how the filesystem is mounted. Just type 'mount' at the command line.
