I take it you're talking about kernel source? It may vary , but in most distributions it would be something like /usr/src/linux-x.xx.xx-x . Yes its normal
for regular users to not have access. if you want , or need to access the files
you can login as root or su root. I'm not all that convinced that its a good idea to change the file permissions to allow regular users access kernel source for security reasons, but chmod is the utility you want to use to change the premissions.
