I'm wanting to use cheats so I went to the swkotor.ini file and put Enable Cheats=1 under the Game Options category. When I went to save, however, wordpad & notepad both say that the file is read me only and cannot be editted. Help?

Right click on the swkotor.ini file, and left click on properties. Then click on security, edit permissions, and give your self full control of the file. Hope it works.

I un-checked the "Read-Only" in the properties window, but now when I save it says "Access to C:-ProgramFiles-LucasArts-SWKotor-swkotor.ini was denied." Why do the cheat websites make it sound so easy? ... Would Vista be doing this?
