I'm new to the list and looking for help with installing Mailman. I have
search the archives about my problem but to no avail. I'm not that good at
Linux so I need some help from the community.

I'm trying to install Mailman 2.0beta2 on my RH5.2. I have uploaded the
Mailman files to a regular user directory (not mailman). Now when I try to
run ./configure I get a permission denied error. I get the error regardless
if I'm root, mailman or the username I used to upload the files as. I have
installed gcc- and Python 1.5.2.

Also, it says in the installation documentation that I should not run the
installation as root but how can I write to mailman's directory if I'm not

TIA for any help.
