In addition, check all applications. Reply with which applications do work?

Does Finder an/or Terminal work? If Terminal works, try the command;
uname -a

Finder and Terminal works ant the command that you told me to use works as well. All of the "common" apps like itunes work as well. The problem is that I can't get Kext Wizard or Kext Helper ( not sure if its supported in my distro ) to install any kexts. Any pacakges I download, will not install...for example I can download a package for my GTX 570. If I try to install it...It does nothing. My hard drive would not be visiable at all when it asks me to choose my location. I even tried mutli-beast. Same issue.

I actually checked my hard drive to see what type of access I had to only said Read Only access. I've been able to change this once or twice but its actually a pain trying to do so because when I press the padlock to unlock it and give me access to change permissions...nothing happens. I would either have to keep clicking the padlock for something to pop up or log out and log back in and HOPE it works. The same if I want to add or remove users.

I'm starting to think that I just have a bad copy or something..maybe I should just re-burn the disc and try again..or if theres another solution try that. I've tried EVYERTHING so far and this is the closest I've got with any distro that I've used.

I won't give up though..not when I'm this close.
