Does the output of mount say your filesystems are mounted rw or r?

/dev/hdb3 on / type xfs (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)
/dev/hdb1 on /boot type xfs (rw)

Note the stuff in parentheses. Seems you might need to remount
the filesystems rw. Something like 'mount -a -o rw' might work.
