Unable to assign custom object permissions to Customer Portal users profile

I have enabled customer portal for my development org. I cloned Authenticated Website User and High Volume Customer Portal user profiles. When I try to add read/create permissions for my custom objects to the new profiles, I do not see the section on the profile edit page at all? How do I grant custom object read/create access to customer portal users?

first you need to enabled your custom objects for portals. Drill down to your object definition page and towards the bottom of the page you will see a check box.

Try cloning the standard customer portal profile.

For some reason, I do not see a profile named Customer Portal user. All I see is Customer Portal Manager and High Volume Customer Portal. I tried cloning both of them, and do not see the Custom Object section at all in the cloned profiles.
