Try this, running as root:

To find your files: use locate command http://www.codecoffee.com/tipsforlinux/articles/20.html
To change permissions use chmod: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chmod
Maybe you need to take ownership of files, chown can do: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chown

Good luck.

What files are you looking for?

What permissions changes do you require?

Do you want to know how to do it or are you just wanting to pay someone to do it for you?

in the end i want to know how to do it.  Right now i may need someones assisntance getting there.

Andrew_CzConnect With a Mentor Commented:
I think you need to specify then exactly what you want to know how to do (perhaps give us examples of what files you want to find, etc.) because the way I see it we've already said how to do what you asked (finding files, changing permissions, webex howto's).
