Since the August 2007 issue of the Supplementary CD, the file access permissions, file owner, and group have changed. This can lead to issues for users who rely on the continuity of these settings.
This issue will be fixed in the October release of the Supplementary CD.
The following is a workaround for this issue.
cp -r /cdrom/UNIX /tmp
chmod -R 555 /tmp/UNIX/
# ls -l /tmp/UNIX
-r-xr-xr-x 1 root wheel <size of file> <date & time> <filename>
