You have to cd to your magento root directory via terminal and check it using

ls -l

you will have something like that: http://screencloud.net/v/o4D3

in first column you can see folder permissions.

To fix the permissions, you can run the commands from the magento wiki:

find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} ;
find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} ;
chmod 550 pear
chmod 550 mage #for magento 1.5+
