okay now i know what you mean.
navigate to the folder you want have write permissions.
right click on it and choose information.
than on the left hand it will pop up a window. scroll to the bottom, there you will see a lock, click it and type in your password.
now youre in the postion to change the write permissions for this folder on the left bottom of the window.
I hope you can follow my terrible english, but that would work for you.

@w7ox - when you install the OS, the first account you create, by default, is an Admin account. I can read/write everywhere else so far, just not able to create any new folders, duplicate files directly in the window where you see the System, Library, Applications, Users folders - everywhere else is fine. Where YOU see the "You can only read" message, below that where you can see "Read & Write" - is that only next to System and Wheel with Read Only next to Everyone?
@chrispi79 - I have manually changed the permissions and this works. However, you shouldn't (and don't have to do this on a real Mac - I've never had this problem on either my Mac Pro or MacBook Pro).

I'm having the same problems. I do not have read/write permissions for my files. I've tried running the permissions repair in the disk utility. I've tried MANY times unlocking folders and adding Admin read/write and added myself to the permissions ...locking and unlocking with my password etc.
Even though my folders now say that I have read/write permissions on the folders I still can't save any text edit or copy and paste anything.
