editing of configuration and policy file while implementing tripwire-2.3.1-2-i686.tgz

1. i have installed tripwire-2.3.1-2-i686.tgz in my pc which is having vector linux.
2. i have installed the tripwire and made the configuration and the policy file along with initialization of the database.
3. the problems which i am facing are as follows:
* when i want to see my config and policy file which i had created under root/etc/tripwire are not visible to me.
* similar is the case with database which i have created.
* i have installed the tripwire in root itself
* once i am doing the editing of the config file twcfg.txt and policy file twpol.txt which are there under root/etc/tripwire the message which i am getting is that the tar file cannot be written get the access to it.i have gone into the properties of both the files and made it both read and write but again message is coming that tar cannot be modified.
* i have created all three config,policy,database but when i want to see what is there inside them i am not able to access them
* when i made config file and policy file i checked under root/etc/tripwire apart from twcfg.txt and twpol.txt there were existing tw.cfg and tw.pol,which are the actual configuration and policy tell me as to how to acess them and edit them as per my requirement
* i want to select some files and directories for which i want to do some changes in my database how can i go about doing this.
* once i m running the file integrity check with the existing database it is running properly and at the end is showing integrity check carried out sucessfully but once it is checking it is giving message as file/directories not found.
* i m really confused as to what my database is actually can i see what files/directories are being selected for integrity check

please tell me the solution to al the above problems so i can rectify it at my end.i also request you if you can give me step by step procedure for editing of configuration file.

thanking you anil
