    I'm trying to put keychain access on my harddrive but it keeps saying I can't copy it onto the harddrive because I don't have permission how do I fix this?

    Because you are not the owner of that keychain maybe:p

    Log in as root and copy it, but then if you log into your normal account you are still unable to access it.

    What does log in as root mean?

    Sorry I'm so slow!

    Also trying to figure out how to put the options allowing all access to keychain on...

    If you don't know what root is you are probably better of not to mess around with it, as a root( super user) you have all right and can severely damage the system if you don't know what you do.

    I would recommend to read what root means before doing anything, just educate yourself first,google root user OS X, you'll find plenty on google.
