i've got a big problem where i dont find a way out. when trying to install there comes the following error:
Is the .htaccess file writeable?
User 'user' needs to write be able to write to this file:
this error occures also for the mysite/ tutorial/ and the assets/ folders...
can anyone tell me what to do now?

As the error already says, do you have write permission to the .htaccess file in the folder
Please check your permissions for the file and folder/subfolder mentioned.
If you have only read permission change it and reinstall SS.

do you mean the settings in one of the silverstripe files or the server peimissions?
if it helps: i have the tar.gz installed

I'd like to know an answer to this one too - I've tried changing the permissions on the files/folder via windows and it always reverts to read-only, i've tried to change the Apache config file... still no joy - i'd really like to be able to get SilverStripe up an running but i find myself stuck with the same problem - being new to building and hosting websites isn't helping either... but with a little help i'll get there...

I have kind of the same problem. I'm running XAMPP 1.6.6 (Apache 2.2.8, PHP 5.2.5 and MySql 5.0.51) on Vista Ultimate and the Silverstripe version is 2.2.1.
I've checked that I have full permissions to my Silverstripe-directory and all the files in it.
Still the install screen complains:
Unable to detect whether I can write to files. Please ensure C:/xampp/htdocs/ss1/.htaccess is writable.
And the same with "C:/xampp/htdocs/ss1/mysite", "C:/xampp/htdocs/ss1/tutorial" and "C:/xampp/htdocs/ss1/assets".
I've enabled mod_rewrite in Apache and it gives this error message when trying to install:
# ERROR: mod_rewrite not working, redirecting to mod_rewrite test page
I will now try and direct you to rewritetest to troubleshoot mod_rewrite
After that it loads the rewritetest.php but doesn't output anything.

SilverStripe 2.2.2-rc2 will be out very shortly, and it should fix this problem.
Stay tuned at http://groups.google.com/group/silverstripe-announce

"Administrators" and "SYSTEM" have the "Full Control" permissions.
Who else needs it to satisfy the "is writable" criteria?
i.e. I don't want to go overboard and select "Everyone" if I don't need to.

The user that runs your webserver needs to be able to, at least while you are installing.
