User and Linux permision on Linux

I have Linux SUSE 9 so when I'm trying to install some applicaion it asks for the dirctory to be installed but when I right the right Directory it refuse with error message of permision denied.
I went to YAST to add the username as root permision but still the same.
the application refused to be installed in the root login.
would you please advice how I can sort this problem out. by other words how I can give the user name the rights to write on this folder from root.

Hi ...

Before going for further troubleshooting, what is the permissions given to that dicrectory. Try by giving chmod -R 777  . You can use chown to change the owner of the directory. "chown -R username:groupname .

please let me know if u r having the problem still after above steps.
