Not to belittle you at all, but that's a really BAD idea.  When you chmod 777 you give read, write, and execute permission to EVERYONE.  The only files i can think of that should be 777 are symlinks and a couple subdirectories in /var (tmp and mail/you...maybe one or two others).
Rather than looking at file permissions as being the problem, i'd look instead at what you're trying to do, and what user you are....many things are just not intended to be done as a regular user.  Unless there is a problem you caused yourself (such as copying files from a fat drive or doing a shoddy remaster), most files in the DSL base system are correctly chmodded already.

can set it up as read only access then, I mess with my config files alot so i leave them open most times, but your right about keeping things locked down, and truely the file only needs read permissions.

your advice is always valued and i never feel put down, I've learned about 80% of what i know from your posts Mikshaw :) and look forward to reading through many more of them.
chmod 555 or chown 555 would be a better solution. for security and stabilty concerns.
i had to add XF86Config to my system as it wasn't a base install. anyway i had similar problems and simple permissions setting fixed it up for me.
