Enabling user exec to install?

view full story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I was told to simply go into the fstab folder to allow myself permissions to execute files without becoming root, but instead of following it blindly I need a 2nd opinion. I cannot install a specific program because of configuration problems even though I downloaded all the gcc, g++ etc packages. I got permission denied and here I am in my fstab folder. Anything I can do about this?
