Hi. I am a Linux newbie.
It's Tuesday evening, I installed RH9 this morning. So I am very Noobie!
Just installed Wine, compiled it, now I am trying a Make Install.
But it cannot create directories in .\user\.....
Investigating further I found I don't have permissions (I tried to create the folders manually)
How do I give myself permission?
It says I am not the owner.
I want to be the owner! It's my 'puter!
Like I said, this is my first day in Linux, I was happy to ungzip? the tarball? and do the compile thingy.
I think i need to log in as an administrator or something? Am I correct? How do I do this.
Take pity on a newbie :^)
