Thanks for that.  I first thought that's it.  I am on XP Pro so this doesn't seem to apply.  I do see the security tab 
if that is what you mean.   But the 'Group or user names' box only selects for which user/group I want to modify 
the permissions, doesn't it?  I don't want to modify or look at permissions.

I am actually looking for the information I see in ls -l as the group, i.e. column #4.

I am trying to fix a completely hosed file system and seem to have quite a bit of trouble with that...  Something's still missing.

Thanks again for your quick reply.
