comment Windows 7 change folder permissions when options are greyed out
It looked like it worked, and when I went to set "Full Control" for all of the users there was no error pop-up. But when I go to delete, it still gives me the "You require permission from Danny-PC\Danny to make changes to this folder" pop-up (and that user is me) with only Try Again and Cancel buttons. I also tried rd /s /q from the command line and just get a bunch of "Access denied"

comment Windows 7 change folder permissions when options are greyed out
That's what I'm saying, this doesn't work. I changed ownership, so when I open the owner menu it says I'm the owner. Then I go to change permissions, and when I click apply I get an "Error Applying Security" pop-up, that says "Access is denied" for each subfolder, so I hit cancel. When I go back to look at permissions, the boxes (including "Full Control") are checked for me. But I still get the "You need permission to perform this action" pop-up when I try to delete the folder. This is why I say I can't change the permissions. Is there no sudo rm -rf equivalent in windows I can use?

comment How to install CentOS 5.5?
This is what I ended up using. I edited your answer to add more details in case others are trying to install from a live cd and choose to go this route.
