Need to Change directory Permissions

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I just upgraded to fedora core 11. I need to change the permission of the html folder. The owner is currently set to root. Since there is no longer a root user (I just found out) it will not let my user account change the permissions in that directory from. How do you change directory permissions in fedora 11?
