First of all check file's permissions.
If file's owner is other than you then login as root and open the file.

to check who owns the files u can use ls -l it will show youl the user and the group owner of the file to change the ownership use the following commands
chown, and chgrp.
if u are not the root then use the "su" command to become superuser and then use the two above command. to know more about the commands use "man chown" or "man chgrp"

For help with permissions you can read a little guide I wrote. Might help you:
