.htaccess frustrations.need some advice.

    Ok, I will try and explain this as best as i possibly can. But here are the steps leading up to my problem.

    ~Install WordPress
    ~2 Options: One for wordpress install location. And another for website address.
    ~Change Website address by adding the WWW. So instead of my site showing up as http:// it will show up as http://www.
    ~Change Permalink Settings to /%postname%/

    .htaccess refuses to be written to unless I do it manually with what WP tells me to put in it. I even tried permissions @ 777 and WP still would not do it. HOWEVER. I change the website address location back to just a plain old http:// instead of how I wanted it. Everything now works fine. How can I fix this? So i can still get my www and have everything still work?

    All help is appreciated.
