I can't make files in directorys
I am new to Linux, but am convinced that it is the way of the future. However, getting used to its rules and procedures are not as clear as Windows as of yet. But given time…..
This is my situation:
I am attempting to install a program, and the instructions say to create a file in a directory called USR. When I attempt to do this, a box appears and says in so many words that I don’t have the permissions to do that. I am logged in as the administrator (ROOT) but it will not comply. My operating system is Red Hat Linux 9.0:
1. Is there an indicator I may use to indicate if I am in administrator mode with all permissions?
2. Are there certain directories that will not permit any changes?
