The system folders are protected, and you need root-privileges to access them. The only other choice would be to change the permissions to let anyone access them (chmod 777 <folder name>), or put your user(s) into a specific group, and give that group write-access (chgrp <group-name> <folder name>, then chmod 775 <folder name>). Check the 775, though, I may have the group-permission out of order....
I'd strongly suggest you not do this. It's a VERY dangerous thing to do.
