    When ever I try to set up a new gallery it gives me this error message

    "Unable to create directory wp-content/gallery/board!
    Directory wp-content/gallery/board is not writeable !
    Unable to create directory wp-content/gallery/board/thumbs !

    The server setting Safe-Mode is on !
    If you have problems, please create directory wp-content/gallery/board and the thumbnails directory wp-content/gallery/board/thumbs with permission 777 manually!"

    How to I manually give it 777 permission?

    It's the Safe-Mode causng the problem see - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/nextgen-gallery-safe-mode-stupidity?replies=15

    You can create the directory by ftp'ing into your web server, navigate to the gallery folder, right click in the folder to create a new directory then right click on the new directory to set the permissions. Personally I would not use 777 but would use 755 which is what nextgen normally sets.
