Change Ownership & Permissions

I'm using OS10.3.9 (Panther) and have been having some problems with copying files to a LaCie firewire drive. The latest concerns some files that were copied and the Ownership & Permissions field in the information box says I have "no access". This is a much broader problem and here is what I want to do: I want to remove every remnent of security on this computer. I want every file to be readable, changable, and so forth by anyone at any time. I don't work at NORAD, so security is not a problem; not being able to simply duplicate and/or open my files is. My computer seems to be way to paranoid and I want to zap all its security systems -- and I mean ALL. Is this possible? Thanks in advance.

While certainly possible by simply logging in as 'root' it is not going to be recommended by anyone. I would recommend you mitigate your security concerns by changing your admin group in /etc/sudoers file to read:
%admin ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

This will permit all admin users no not require a password.
