Hi Rafid,

This is clearly a permission problem on your system. The user you are  
installing SGE as does not seem to have write permission in the area  
you are designating as your $SGE_ROOT. You need to fix the permission  
problems or run the installer as the root user (it is possible to run  
the install as the root user while choosing another non-privileged  
user account to be the designated SGE administrator).
