Hey Stefan,

 I hope things are working out for you, just one thing, you do know that
you can do a 'chown -R <user> <dir>' don't you? The -R is for recursive do
'man chown', this also applies for chgrp and chmod, sorry if this seems
like a dumb question.

 Also, if you are using BBEdit, which is my favorite text editor (second
is Vim) it also has an FTP client built in. I have never used the built in
FTP client, but I hear it is pretty nice (I use NetFinder). Seriously,
from my experience, removing AppleTalk (netatalk, etc.) isn't a bad idea
at all. FTP is way more efficient and more Unix/Linux/OSX friendly. :-)
