Why not read the installation instructions in the release notes? It
covers what permissions are needed.

You also don't say *what* you are trying to install. Classic and
Superserver are not the same....Fb 1.5 and Fb 2.0 are not the same....

You're going to get a variety of permissions problems according to
what you have or haven't covered in running a manual install and also
according to which *model* (Classic/SS) you are trying to connect to,
using which client. Absent a crystal ball, there's not a lot of help
you can get here without providing something to go on.
