It seems I dont have rights to do much at all. If I open a file in vi it
is always in read only. It seems I can upload stuff into /var/hacks
using commandline ftp but I tried to ruun elseed and it come back with a
126 cannot execut binary. I did chmod +x as it onl had rw owner and r
for group / world.

Tivoweb runs fine. I want to play but I cant :/

If you run the 'mount' command with no arguments, you will see that
/ is mounted read-only (ro) and /var is mounted read-write (rw).

The standard procedure for editing files that are not in the /var
partition is this:
mount -o remount,rw /
vi /etc/whatever-file-needs-editing
mount -o remount,ro /

the vi problem is probably because youre trying to edit files on
a read only system, dont forget to mount it rw
