Can any one please assist me????

I have searched the man for the default flags. I became confused and have
stuffed a lot of them up. I issued a chmod 0007 * on most dirs followed by a
chmod ug+w * . Is there an easy way of reseting all rights back to square 1
as it were, I have read the man section on install and considered issuing a
chmod 0755 * in all dirs. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated as I am
only a rank novice. I can still log in as root fine so all is not lost maybe. 

I would welcome the source location of any good FreeBSD manuals, books or
help files. Thank you.

Kind Regards,

Jeffrey Itzstein
