What is difference between gram positive and gram negetive bacteria?

Neha Singh said: (May 2, 2013)  
Both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria may have a membrane called an S-layer. In Gram-negative bacteria, the S-layer is attached directly to the outer membrane. In Gram-positive bacteria, the S-layer is attached to the peptidoglycan layer. Unique to Gram-positive bacteria is the presence of teichoic acids in the cell wall. Some particular teichoic acids, lipoteichoic acids, have a lipid component and can assist in anchoring peptidoglycan, as the lipid component is embedded in the membrane.

What is the main cause of typhoid?

I have a question, we know that plant cell consists of cell wall and cell membrane too and cell membrane is permeable, but for osmosis cell wall also needs to be permeable otherwise how will the water will reach inside the cell. Is cell wall permeable?
