When I do a repair permissions I get the following information at the end. It's a log that reads:

{Repairing permissions on disk /

Started verify/repair permissions on disk disk0s2 "my" Disk
Group differs on "private/etc/cups", should be 0, group is 26

Finished verify/repair permissions on disk disk0s2 "my" Disk

Checking special permissions...

Privilege repair complete. (I replaced my name to "my")}

Now where it says private/etc/cups should be 0, group is 26, should I be concerned about that and if so what to do about it? Everything is running okay. Mac OS X 10.5.4
Thanks for a reply

Everything is just fine and the cups is to do with your printer. Here is a discussion on this:-

Thanks harryb for the information. I can rest easier now. I'm still new at this Mac stuff. I had enough to be concerned about with tropical storm Fay here in Florida. <G>
