Did you totally miss what I just posted, piwozniak?
Replace that file. Reboot (might change on a logout instead). Done.

No i did not.
By default you don't have permission to access:
so either you do it through terminal, os9, or root user.
osxhints gives you command so you just copy/paste command in terminal window. I don't know how confortable TigerWoods99 is with unix so i assumed this would be aesier.
Boy oh boy...
