Cedega and Admin Rights

I think i posted this in the wrong section of the Forum. Im trying to install Battlefield 2 in Linux..

I downloaded Cedega, and installed and installed update.

I mounted bf2 cd and I tried to install, it got about 3 seconds into the installation process and Gave me Error:
You must have administrator privilages to do this... Or something to that effect..

Can anyone please give me a hand?

You need to su to root before you can write to system directories such as /usr/bin, /usr/lib, and /etc.

Cedega is a Red Hat Server fork, isn't it? If so, you might also need to check the SELinux logs. You may need to explicitly give rights to the program to read it's configuration files.

You will probably need to read through the documentation on how to do this, and also check your configuration to see if you are using SE Linux.
