Hi Mike,

My questions:

1.  What user and group owners did the file have?
2.  Under what username did you attempt this?  In particular:
  a.  Were you logged in as root on your own system?
  b.  Was your username different than the file's owner?
3.  What were the permissions of:
  a.  the file?
  b.  the directory containing the file?
