What could cause such an error? (i'm just a shell user). from what i know, i think i might need to create the folder /usr/local/mysql/ but i could be wrong. do i need root access to create that folder? i get "Permission denied" whenever i try to create that folder in /usr/local/.

it would appear that you do not have the proper permission to create directories under /usr/local/, if this is not your personal system then you may need to contact the administrator of that machine to install it.
