Your permissions for /var/www read how? Since you are accoustomed to
using a *NIX already, this should be the first place to look. One
question im not seeing... are you working from the machine remotely?
I.E. ssh, FTP.. so on? If you issue a sudo -i from the machine
directly you should have SuperUser powers...(after entering the su
password that is) If you dont, I would have to say your problems are
ALOT bigger than just not being able to edit your root directories..
