You can edit the DocumentRoot directive in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and set it to any path you like (so long as it exists and the user "apache" can read from it) - I usually use /home/www/html or /home/httpd/html. Most people find this works better as there is more space on their home partitions.
NOTE: You will need to be logged in as root to add the directories.
The reason you can't write to the current directory is because you do not have the correct permissions on it.
