NMap problems


When I run Nmap in cmnd prompt :

nmap -sT www.mysite.com

it gives "only ethernet devices can be used for raw scans on windows and "ppp0" is not an ethernet device. Use the unprivileged option for this scan.
Quitting!"

Why is this coming when I'm using ethernet cable connection for this...

Secondly when I'm typing nmap -sP <some ip add> it gives
"Warning : Unable to find appropriate interface for system route to ...."
followed by the same ethernet connection msg....pls help

try running in root, or if you are in root, as a regular user.

I seem to remember Nmap had couple of weird behaviors depending on your permissions.
