Hey special ed -

who is the directory owned by? ls -l will show you.. also, what group is 
it in? Lastly, find out what user CF is running as(do a ps -aux on linux 
or ps -efx(i think..) on solaris) and find the CF process'.. they're 
probably running as 'nobody', so you need to make your directory either 
owned by nobody( chown nobody /home/specialed/data ) with read/write 
perms( chmod 644 /home/specialed/data ) or give the nobody group(not 
user) read write permission ( chgrp nobody /home/specialed/data ) ( 
chmod 664 /home/specialed/data )

That should do the trick.. Shout if you have more questions :)
