It's probably _not_ "owner rights" that are upsetting your attempts to
save the image (back over itself.) Files copied from a CDROM are marked
as Read-Only -- because - Taa!-Daa! - files on a CDROM are _not_
writeable. When you copy them down to your hard-drive they are marked
r-xr-xr-x (or, for you winderz users: the attributes are set to R/O.)
Just chmod the file to 600 (or, ATTRIB -R .)
"Owner Rights" are something else entirely -- a whole separate topic.
