I'm using Fedora Core 8, but I can't edit/add/delete files from Fedora. I've tried changing it by going into XP and un-clicking "Read-Only." So do I have to give my account, on Fedora, special privelages? Or do I have to change something from XP?
EDIT: I'm using Portable Apps on a USB flash drive.
the whole drive or just a specific folder?

that it is every folder that has an icon.
The problem is that on windows, the "read-only" flag for a directory, doesn't mean read-only, it means "look for desktop.ini".
The fat filesystem drivers on most (all?) linuxes actually believe that read-only means read-only, so you're stuck.
attrib -r <dirname>
will clear it, but you'll lose the icon.
chmod a+w <dirname>
Will do basically the same.
