clearing write protection from library

Hi everyone
	I was mentioning how to save the html page plus Marvin's pdf file if
you wanted to update your library at home. I forgot that when you copy
something from a cd it is write protected since a cd can't be written to
and it keeps those attributes when copied over 
	If you highlight a file by left clicking on it and then right click on
it and go down to properties you will see that there is a box called
Read Only. If you uncheck this box you can over write a file saved from
the internet, otherwise it will throw up a message saying this file
can't be written to. If you go to windows explorer and go into each
folder on the library you can highlight the top one and then while
holding the shift ke down highlight the bottom one and then click on it
the same way you did an individual file and uncheck the read only
	If you really want to do it fast fire up your dos program and navigate
to the library folder and type attrib -R /S *.*   This will clear them
from the whole library in one shot. You could even clear them from your
whole computer that way also. Make sure you know what you are doing
since *.* means all files and if you were to give the wrong command you
would hate yourself before it is over.
